Living with M.S.

"Living with M.S. is sort of like training for a long race. The harder you try, and the longer you keep at it, the stronger you become.
Eventually, looking back, you may be amazed at the power you possessed, even when you had no idea it was within your reach." (Linda Ann Nickerson)


Ever feel disconnected, disenchanted, disassembled, or disorderly?

Yep, me too. It sort of goes with the MS territory. There’s no disgrace or dishonor in that.

Hey, we’re not trying to disturb anyone. It’s this *$#% disease.

Sure, maybe we MSers occasionally disappoint others when we become a little distracted for a time. But we’re not seeking discord, and we’re not necessarily disgusted or disgruntled at the time. We mean no disrespect, either.

Sometimes it’s just easier to disappear for a bit, rather than hanging around to discuss and dissect  the intricacies of our crazy multiple sclerosis symptoms, which usually confuse even us. Such a discourse can dissolve us at times.

On the other hand, such moments of distancing ourselves can lead to gems of discovery. I love this quotation from A.A. Milne (1882 – 1956).

One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.

What have you discovered, in such moments of MS mayhem?
