      My column next week will be on the possibility of personality changes with MS. Have you noticed any changes in your personality? If so, what are they?

      I used to hear, long before I or my daughter ever had MS, that there was something called an MS personality.Not too long ago I read a blog that there really wasn’t much evidence that there is such a thing as an MS personality. As for me, I was an only child and a very shy one at that.I became more outgoing and not so shy as an adult but I can’t say. I’ve never been a person that will introduce myself to others in a group and usually I am still basically the same. I cannot say that having MS which I found out about at age 57 changed anything for me. I’m fortunate that I so far do not use a cane or w/c but sometimes certain noises irritate me or I seem to have less patience than I used to, but I can’t say this is a result of MS. I was born with an introverted personality that makes me who I am, that I cannot say was changed by MS. May be that some circumstances change my reactions but that could have happened with or without having MS.

      Hi Ellen,

      Thanks for sharing your story! I feel that MS didn’t change my shy personality. But, I do believe that MS does affect my anxiety,  patience  and irritability.  It makes sense, to me, that it would be MS,  since the disease is wearing on our nerves.
