Post 574 Ask yourself some questions 18 Dec 2019


I do not need to know your answer, and I do not believe there is a need to share. That means if "YOU" decide to answer any questions, it is your very own secret, shhhh. Your answers can change over your very long time living with Relapsing-Remitting ms (RRms) as your life circumstances may change, so be prepared to be flexible\adaptasble\maleable. "YOU" and I have a lifetime with RRms, things change. Nothing is ever chiselled into the granite.

First question and perhaps the hardest. What do "YOU" want out of your long life with this condition? I understand that a lot of people want that miracle cure, but I feel that is beyond us all in 2019. Maybe in the distant future but not now.

Second question, what are "YOU" willing to do to achieve question one? Anything, nothing, be honest with yourself. Remember only "YOU" know the answers, nobody else.

Onto the third question. Are "YOU" showing, teaching those around "YOU" strength resilience, courage. All of the positive influences that "YOU" wished that "YOU" had around "YOU", or that "YOU" do have around "YOU" I feel that I honour my Mothers influence by carrying on every day regardless of any obstacles. I feel that I show others by pushing myself, sometimes too hard, but carrying on no matter what. I may look drunk, but that bloke (guy) still seems to stagger no matter what.

I am sure that "YOU" can think of your very own questions to ask yourself. Ask them, get answers, and hold yourself to them for a time. RRms is a very long term condition that we all have. Sitting, in the cold dark, cramped corner crying is no way to live a life. In my opinion, anyway. Give yourself a goal, a reason for living. Then get out of bed and start doing what has to be done, to achieve it.

I will because I can, when I can not, I will find something else to achieve. I will never give up on myself and neither should you give up on yourself.
