Its amazing to know that there are people like you out there. I want to thank you! If anyone else out there has gotten help, support, questions answered or even a simple hello from Uppitycats feel free to post and share the experience you had by talking to Uppitycats.

Uppity, you are an inspiration to all of us.  I hope I can some day have your positive outlook on life in general.  I also hope that I can help others even a fraction of the amount you help everyone here.  Happy New Year!

You are awesome!! I always look for your posts because they are filled with knowledge. HW would not be the same board without you here!!

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

Hi Uppity,
Thanks for all relaying all your years of dealing with this disease.  I do appreciate your insight, also. :-)

Thursday a.m.
When I was first DXed 19 years ago, I just assumed that everyone had a  very supportive spouse and family....not to mention a GREAT neuro.
BOY, was I wrong.
Uppity, as they say in current sports vernacular, you 'da man.  Or should I say, 'da woman.

Actually I think all of you should pat yourselves on your backs, just for coping day by day with a chronic illness, whether you're formally diagnosed with MS or not.  Kermit the frog said this, in a slightly different context tongue : "It ain't easy, bein' green..." 

It ain't easy, dealing with a body that isn't working "right", in a whole host of ways, and with a disease that isn't curable, and varies all over the place as to how it can affect you, day by day. Sometimes hour by hour.

Somebody suggested I had a "positive attitude".  I don't think of myself as "positive", as much as "stoic".  I've got this disease, which is a pain in the butt, and affects me in a myriad of ways.  I'm doing what I can to deal with it as best I can. (shooting up the Betaseron, coping with the side effects, dealing with all the other stuff).  It's a downer, for sure.  But I decided I'm not going to depress everyone around me with it...most folks have enough problems of their own, some severe, some imagined. And it's not like my complaining to them will change anything for me -- only make BOTH of us depressed.  So I shut up, most of the time.  And the librarian/school-teacher/have-to-learn-all-I-can-about this switch doesn't have an "off switch", so if I find out something, and someone asks, I have to blurt it out. And youse guys are the recipient of that...for better or for worse.  And I hope you'll tell me to shut up when you've had enough of me!

My husband and I have been married for 38 years, together for he knows me pretty well, and generally knows when I'm feeling like....uh...poo.  And knows enough to pretty much leave me alone to work it out myself....and knows that, if I DO need help with something, I'll ask. Otherwise, back off!!  tongue

Anyway.. You're all kind.  But you all deserve accolades yourselves, for having to deal with this poo, too.

Have a good new year, everyone.  Life DOES go on, you know. And 2007 is knockin' at the door....


No..wait...that's the UPS guy.....  gotta go...

Cats, you know how I feel. I have said it more than once.

I thought I would say something funny, but it seems out of place
when you mean so much to all of us.

I will wish you a better year than last, and hope that you will continue
helping the hundreds of people that rely on those shoulders you carry
us around with.
