A question that seems to be asked a lot, I am not sure why, as the answer is so apparent. "WHY", my Relapsing-Remitting ms (RRms) sister or brother. WHY NOT. "YOU" like me are Homo Sapien, (Human), this is a human disease, so why not? That is why we have this condition. Give yourself time to understand and fully comprehend this. It may take "YOU" a few years, but it will come. There is no other rhyme or reason why. What "YOU" can change is how "YOU" choose to react to your condition. Do nothing, sit in that cold dark cellar and cry or my preferred option.
Stand up, straighter, pull your shoulders back, wipe away your tears and ask yourself. "okay, what do I need to start doing to have a livable life ?" "YOU" have it so start doing it and only stop when the dirt falls on your coffin.
There are others who are angry and bitter about what is happening to them. There is no need to be, it just "IS", our lot in this lifetime, we can not change that. People can take away our money, our dreams of being cured, whatever that is, but this condition is ours and ours alone. Chin up, it does not have to be horrible; there is no need to be scared. A little apprehensive maybe, but others have done this and so can "YOU", "YOU"are made of stronger stuff than "YOU" ever imagined.
Within "YOU" is a fire. Maybe a little dim right now, but feed it good fuel and let it light the nights sky. Let it burns so brightly that galaxies away, aliens look into their night Sky and ask what is that? Answer, of course, is YOU.
