My older sister, who is very hauty and narcissistic, asked me how I was via text message a few weeks ago.
I replied that I was very tired that day.
Her reply: `Well, that happens sometimes. '
I can tell by her statements in the past, that she has never looked up anything about MS at all. The only reason she cares at all is because her ex-boyfriend died of complications of PPMS. That shocked her, but not enough to actually read anything about it, or to know the types oh MS.
A few years ago, she told me, in a drunken stupor (an all to common state for her) to 'get the f out of my house.' Twice!
I could go on and on about her nasty behavior...
I guess the point here is that the invisibility of this illness is a serious problem, even sometimes with family.
To her, unless it's obvious like a mobility aid, it doesn't exist, and therefore I'm just a malingerer.
