I have had Ms since the year of 2007. I try to stay happy everyday but sometimes it is very hard. Every time you get the house spotless, it seems as though you have to start all over again.
The kids are really smart my 9 year old boy even more so. He has never known me before I was sick. He watches me closely cause he thinks he can get away with doing what ever he wants. But one day I said enough and I got out of my bed and started staying in the living room and keeping him in my sight. He acted up one day and I came up to him ( in my walker and my speech wasn't very good) I told him I might fall on you but if you don't straighten up I'm going to take you out of that chair and discipline you. He don't look at me the same way anymore and listens to me now when I'm not doing so good. That day when I said that to him he straightened up for the rest of the day.
I try to think of good things about MS like new movies I have seen before I can't remember them. I can watch the same movies over again like it is new. As long as I don't watch it to soon after I have seen it. Instead of getting mad at some things from my past that I can't remember I put my thoughts on seeing a movie again.
I know it's hard on everyone around me sometimes but they try very hard to support me and love me. It's nice to be able to read other peoples stories on MS and know that you are not alone.
