reading messages from people who have coped and moved forward isn’t helping at all.
So what are we supposed to do then, just stay negative…?
Of course having MS is hard is that better? I lost a great job, my life everything changed, i have had dark times so dark i nearly didnt bother to come out the other side, BUT with support from others I worked through it all. With support from positive people I made it to 11 years. If i had gone on groups and people had fed me my depression, and told me what is the point, i would not be here now.
There is life with MS, as there is life with lots of other diseases, its finding the middle ground and learning to live with it, and its restrictions. I never ask more of it, then it can give me, so i dont set myself up for a fall.
Jeez i am in pain everyday even now typing this, my body is burning, tingling, fizzing, vibrating and i havent even gotten out of bed yet.
Yes MS is hard, it has huge challenges, but we can get through it if we want too. It takes time and patience to deal with it. MS is not a death sentence, only by our own hands. Its a challenge yes jeez hell a real challenge but if i had given up when i wanted too when i felt at my darkess i would have missed so many things, a lot has happened to me, seen wonderful things, and new sunsets, and sunrises, met so many lovely people, been all over the world without leaving my chair, chat to people as far away as aussie, USA, thailand, kenya i have friends everywhere now, because we all support each other.
Yeh MS STINKS, MS IS HARD, MS SUCKS, so on and so forth, WHY ME? WHY NOT ME? I have got it, i have now come to terms with my losses, and i get on with it and if i can help support someone else through a dark time I will, without feeling guilty of making anyone feel worse.
