As I sat thinking tonight about this MS stuff and all I have been thru in the last year I am amazed that I have come thru as well as I have.  I'm sure that those of you who have been diagnosed and lived with MS for over a year can relate when you think back.
 
This is not to say that I have surrendered to the disease or that anything is better, just that I am aclimating to it.
 
To those of you just beginning this journey I can offer you comfort and hope.  You will have good and bad days and you will have to learn that you are not super woman/man.  You learn to "rearrange" your world regardless of the groans of family and freinds.  You also learn to deal with the quirkiness of this disease and the unexpected new findings.
 
I hope when I look back in a year, five years, 10 years..I will be able to say the same things.  I hope to deal with each and every new quirk and to not be bitter about living with this, because after all....I am "living" with it!
 
I do appreciate the words of wisdom I have gained from many of you and I hope I can offer the same to those who need it. :-)
