When asked this question, most of us think of our preferences in the opposite sex.
Blondes. Brunettes. Tall. Stocky. Blue eyes. Brown eyes. Manly. Petite. Athletic. Confident. Plump. Funny. Professional. Black. White. Asian.
And the list goes on and on.
But what I meant to ask is….What’s YOUR Type?
“Sure, I’m game.”
Comfortable in any situation.
Maybe you are more of a “creature of habit.”
“Can we eat first?”
“Let me think about it.”
Nervous in new situations.
If you are one with multiple sclerosis, you have changed from one type to the other.
Me personally, I was a big “go with the flow” person. Always up for something new. Ready to roll at any time.
But now, after being shackled to my MS partner for 17 years, I find myself as more a “creature of habit.”
Always assessing the situation.
Not so willing to rock the boat.
Maybe it’s fear of rousing the MS monster. Like trying to keep a grease fire under control.
It’s possible though, your MS has changed you the other way around. From a “creature of habit” to one who is more relaxed by “going with the flow.”
So, I ask again…What’s your type?
And how does it affect your multiple sclerosis?
Have you experienced a change in your “type” since your diagnosis?
It’s probably a coin toss to say which type is better for MS. Both have their own pros & cons.
All we can do is compare stories and make the best choice for our particular day, mood, situation, energy level, age, time of day and the list goes on and on.
