About 3 months into my diagnosis, I noticed the toilet seat being in the down position one night and mentioned it to my husband. He said he had been putting it down for me. This is after many years of marriage, and him asking me why would a guy put it down after use. Being old and old-fashioned, I suggested that it was a kind, gentlemanly gesture, but there was no response. He's such a sweetheart, but it didn't occur to him how nice it was for me for him to do that until I had MS. So on days when I can't think of much in the way of positives, I'll think on this!
I'll bet you all have some slightly odd benefits you've received from having this thing.
