How supportive are your family and friends of your AI? I dont' feel my friends completely understand what MS is, but they are supportive and just accept things the way they are and don't ask too much other than making sure I'm doing ok. Both my parents have worked directly with MS due to their careers, so I know they are fully supportive.

Do you know people that don't understand and just say "get over it"? I've had people ask me what that is and how was I diagnosed. I've had one person ask me if it was terminal. I don't mind those questions because it seems they are just curious, but I haven't any clueless questions and dumb comments. Though I hear about it all the time, and I think it's awfully tactless of people to either make assumptions or ask forward questions based on what they don't understand.
