Well I have MS. Same story as the rest of you I expect. Symptoms - doctors- wrong diagnosis - lots of nasty tests - diagnosis. Lots of questions. I don't know how the rest of you feel but I feel like a spectator sitting up here in my brain and the body is just doing its own thing!

Going through a relapse at the moment and no doubt its worse than some, probably a lot better than most. Somedays you just get tapped with the 'I'm feeling sorry for myself' stick.

Today was my turn. But on the way back from the hospital I just stopped and looked around. Just a normal town. The amount of people in wheelchairs or with sticks or bent over etc.. etc... etc...Blind or with deaf dogs. People with obvious mental difficulties. You just tend to get stuck in your bubble and think everybody is well and you are the only one struggling. How wrong. How very very wrong.

I'm glad I had this small awakening today. It takes the sting out of it a little. The condition is not personal - it just is. And I will get on with it as best I can - just like everyone else.

I work in a hospital, always very sick people around. I also have MS. And even knowing that it could be worse, sometimes you "just get tapped with the feeling sorry for myself stick". That was a great way to put it. :). Hang in there, we all are!!
