Interview excerpt: Mary reflects that it has taken time to establish how much to share about her condition.

Image representing Mary© Disability NarrativesI think also there's probably an awareness that although it is getting better, it is kind of part of me now. I suppose I've become more relaxed about it. And I think partly I've just had to be more relaxed about it, because every six months [laughing] I have to explain to all these colleagues why I'm not marking exam scripts. So I've kind of almost given up [laughing]. In a way. But yes, and I suppose the better I get - physically - the easier it is. Because you know the end is in sight. You know, and I'm so much better now. I can't tell you how much better I am [laughing]. So, yeah. It's, it's great. And I didn't used to be able to sit this long, either. So all those kinds of things that were difficult. You know, in terms of transport, or meetings, or anything like that.
