Ok this might be a bit negative but I am up for a group vent.  What do you miss?

I miss a hot bath.  I miss hiking until exhaustion.  I miss hot summer days and being out in them for as long as I want.

I miss getting down on the floor and playing with my family and the dogs. I miss hiking. I miss working 40 hours a week. I miss who I used to be. I miss everything I've lost from this.

I miss working out with heavy weights like I used to be able to, until I could really feel it, but now if I do this i'll pay for it for weeks,lol, but at least I can still do it somewhat. And I miss wearing my high heels!!!!

I found something that has high heels but they don't hurt me as much....I found boots as wal-mart that have a thick heel so that I have the support and still look good.....lol!

I miss feeling confident that there's nothing I can't do.
 
This has shown me that each day there seems to be something I can no longer do or do well.
 
I'm a therapist (mental health & addiction) and I had to give up seeing clients due to symptoms. 
 
I once thought perhaps I'd find love again for the second half of life but now when I note the issues I have, I'm thinking why bother to burden someone with all of that.
 
I also have celiac disease -- I want REAL pizza

I miss being the person I use to be.
I miss my confidence, being fearless, my independence, my dreams, waking up each day excited to see what it would bring and sounds silly but, my old clothes. I miss jeans and flip flops, tight shirts and great lingerie!!!! And I miss dancing.

I miss feeling normal & balanced, I miss running in the grass, skiing on the Matterhorn, I miss the smell of rain, the fragrance of my daughter's hair and the friends who could not bear to stay.
Have had relapsing/remitting MS since 10 yrs old. Secondary/progressive since 1995. Baclofen pump since 2008.

Right now, I am missing the man my husband used to be and should still be. I miss talking into the wee hours of the night about anything and everything with my cousin. I miss living.

I miss my family. I miss being "me".  I miss being able to run around playing with my children. I miss having energy! Oh, and yes I definitely miss how a hot bath used to be painfree and relaxing. I miss being in a blissful state of "nieve" (sorry, can't remember how to spell it, go figure) about what chronic diseases are and how people could be affected.
 
I know one thing.....I Don't miss all these medications I now have to take! lol
Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 4:17,18
