I recently realized how confusing it must be to those around me who don't understand MS. I'm super open about it but few people take time to understand what having MS means. I feel my church group is confused because I work as a substitute teacher almost every day, just ran our Cub Scout program for 6 1/2 years (done for now), can work in my yard and take walks around the neighborhood, and yet if I sit for an hour I can barely walk. So after church meetings and programs it looks really bad. Sometimes I think people think I'm faking it. No one says anything, but I get a clear impression of confusion. I know I'd have questions if I saw someone like me and hadn't experienced MS myself. I guess I just feel bad no one seems to understand.
