Not everybody wants to hear it, and not everybody wants to believe it. It is much easier to blame something or somebody else, but. My Relapsing-Relapsing ms (RRms) sibling for the most part, "YOU" are to blame\resposible for your life with this illness. Getting it, none of us is responsible for. The reality is we do not even know for sure when we got it, let alone where it came from. I have a guess in my case, but I could be wrong. How I live with it though, is entirely my responsibility. If I do nothing, I know what that may lead to. Darkness, fear and disability. If I get the Disease-Modifying Therapies (DMT), my odds at walking tall maybe a little better. Not perfect 100%, merely better. Not a cure but I do not expect miracles and neither should "YOU"
Have responsibility in yourself. I hated those interferon needles, yet every two days I bared my arse (ass, butt) and my mother stabbed a needle in me. I took responsibility for myself. I did what had to be done whether I liked it or not, no matter how much it scared me. I am actually really scared of needles, better these days but at first I would run a mile. I still do not like them, but I cope. I am responsible for me, nobody else and "YOU" my ms sibling are responsible for "YOU". Keep that in mind with any decision "YOU" make, any action "YOU" take. How our life progresses with RRms can be partially up to us.

I do the best for me because this is y life, I never skipped a shot in 10 years
I still have this nagging memory of a close friend saying i got my MS because of things i had done in my past. This was like the week i was diagnosed. We r no longer friends but i so want to rub her face in the info i have since found out. That no one knows how it happens.
But i have to let that go. Hold my head up high and march on as u have said. Its how we keep going that counts. We r responsible for r own actions.
Good post as always.
okay, but rubbing her face in something might be fun. Sorry I c could not resist saying that, mean as it was.
I totally appreciate the laugh!
