Gringots, I am not going to assume that everybody knows what this is. The Goblin bank in the Harry Potter series. A place where wizards and witches hide their treasured possessions, safe from prying eyes and unscrupulous, dastardly thieves.
This is the place that I suggest that "YOU" place all of your victories no matter how small. A few years ago, when I was enjoying the nightly pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia. I would imagine it hitting me like a storm wave, and as it recedes, I would go to my vault. Remember that the night before this happened and that I survived. That I had survived the night before that and the night before that. I remembered that I had survived many many nights, and if I had done this, I have no reason not to do it again. Admittedly sometimes I broke, I overdosed and ended up in the ER two or three or four times. Yes, I know much better, but everybody has to push themselves now and again. That is half the fun of a Relapsing-Remitting ms9RRms) life. I like "YOU" are here to learn and experience. I do not advocate "YOU" to do reckless and foolish things like me, but I do ask "YOU"to think about how "YOU want to live your long RRms life.
Do "YOU" want to endlessly weep in that dark corner, or do "YOU" want to live with this condition. Accept your ups and downs and carry on through it. Have RRms and say oh well, what next I CAN DO this. I WILL DO this. I AM DOING THIS no matter what it throws at me.

Believe in yourself and live well
