Wow, isn't that the truth. I think cancer is so horrible. We with MS have a lot to deal with but when you see people going through the cancer treatments, it gives me a feeling of such gratefulness that I only have MS. How lucky am I to only have to deal with this.
I used to be embarassed to have MS. I didn't want to talk about it or go out because I was ashamed like I had done something wrong. Then I happened to run in to someone who had MS and wasn't like me at all, who was proud and not embarassed to talk about her problems dealing every day with bowel, bladder, walking, talking, shaking and all the other fun things that we deal with day to day. Well that put me right. Now I will talk to anyone and everyone who will listen and even a few who won't. ha ha.
And yes, I have started writing that book, just for myself, to write down what I can remember about what lead me from the very start of every prickle and pain to this point right now. The day the diagnosis came, the tests, the triumphs, waking up March 2, 2006 not being able to move my legs and how scary that feeling was, all of it.
You know we need to keep talking and telling everyone and informing people about this disease until there is a cure. Take care everyone. Keep in touch.
