8:08 am
>> you told me when you immediately made the announcement, you felt vulnerable. >> yes. >> i was surprised to hear you say shame and guilt. why would you feel shame? >> it sounds crazy, but when i think, you know -- when you hold a secret, the feelings just come along with that, especially when you hold a secret as long as i did. you know, with something like ms, you know, you lose control over things that you once had. it slowly is taken away from you. it can chip away at your self-worth, and you can feel lessened. a lot of negative feelings. you have to ask for help sometimes, which is something i'm not good at doing. but you have to be able to reach out. when you have a good support system, like i have, i think it helps a lot. it took me this long to be able to do this. >> your diagnosis came 15 years ago. your symptoms at the time were what? >> at the time, were minimal.
