Aren't those moments priceless? The denying stops for a brief second or a minute, and realitykicks in.
It's not that any of us don't know what we have or how crappy we feel everyday....but somehow the words don't ring in our ears.....MS MS, YOU HAVE MS. We just deal with the day as best we can and keep moving down the road.
But every now and then......we do hear the words. We stop in our tracks just long enough to understand what we have and where we may be going. A cold slap in the face.
The good news? is that we jump right back to denial, and keep on moving back down the path. We have to, because there is no where else to go. That is the great thing about this and other forums. The people never give up, they hit bumps like your description.....or a "why me" or "life will never be the same", but we wouldn't be normal? if we didn't.
Reality checks are good things. They help us understand that although we think we can do everything someone else can do..........we do need to be careful and we do have MS.
Take care of youself Shar. I enjoyed your post very much.
