If I want to quote a message before replying to it a message comes up saying i can’t do that.

Can this be resolved?

Hi Cracowian, thank you for flagging this - we hadn’t noticed and I will have our Web Team looking in to fixing this asap. Thanks again, Oliver - admin

On opening this thread I was expecting to read a deep and meaningful quote regarding life with MS.

Can anyone post one?

I love that, Ellie.

Hardly deep and meaningful and not to be taken too literally, but suspect this has a ring of truth for some.

“The worst thing about MS is that I woke up today feeling worse, in more pain, and more disabled than I’ve ever been in my life. And yet, at the same time, I know that today is the best I will EVER feel again. And by next year, I’ll look back on how well I was today and wish it back”.

Well that’s really cheered me up!!

I see your point and did hesitate, but it’s a tough ask to come up with anything terribly positive about MS. Perhaps a better way of saying it would be - don’t put anything off and do what you can, while you can.
Actually that’s not too good either is it?

“Don’t put off until tomorrow, what you can achieve today”.

This is actually a quote from long ago by my Mum, relating to a pile of ironing! Nowadays, I use it to get out of bed, drink a cuppa, get dressed etc.

" Live today as though it’s your last, one day it’ll be accurate". But obvious that one.

Not really but you are right in that positive quotes about MS are tricky. Maybe not try?

I prefer… ‘Don’t do today what you can put off until tomorrow.’

I see your point Ben, but you didn’t know My Mum. Constantly busy, cooking, cleaning for our family of 8. When I asked her to phone my boss to say I’m not well, she told me “I haven’t got time to be ill, now get up and go to work”. Aged 70, she danced to March of the Mods at my 40th. Positive could have been her middle name.

Sorry, that’s nothing to do with MS, except I’m pleased my parents never knew I’d have PPMS 20 years later.I

That’s lovely Steph.

I would love to get it tattooed but it’s a bit long!

It would have to be wound around your whole body!! Lovely Emily Dickinson though.

I was going to quote something in response to your quote and to my whinge about not being able to quote - anyway - after I pressed ‘quote’ a message came up – ‘this field has been disabled because you do not have sufficient permission to use it.’ Antony are you there?

oops it’s not Antony I want but Oliver ------------ Oliver are you there?

Anthony’s not omniscient or omnipotent.

I found one that sort of works

“Just because we accept you as you are doesn’t mean we’ve abandoned hope you’ll improve.”

hmmmm
