MS and your emotions

To all of you out there in this MS community, whether newly diagnosed or those who have had MS for awhile:

After seeing your posts covering different physical aspects of the condition, how has having MS affected your emotions regarding difficulties you may have experienced in your employment; relationships to others (marriage, family and friends); recreation (what we do with our spare time); and other areas that MS touched in our lives? Also, last of all, what would be your personal feelings that you have toward having this condition? The reason why I post this is because I have struggled with my emotions off and on over the years toward my having MS. Even though my MS is currently stable; it still affects my life emotionally in all the areas that I mentioned above. So, what about all of you? How have you handled these emotions toward having MS?

Best regards,
