I am not a religious person . I was born, raised and educated a Roman Catholic. Therefore I consider myself to be an extremely spiritual person and believe that there just has to be a reason why the Powers-To-Be from above have given me this hideous disease for a reason. I have decided it's educational. I am going to visit schools where there has to be children who are suffering. I will tell my story and advice that if they are experiencing similar sensations that they are not 'growing pains' or 'attention seeking' or not 'crying over spilt milk' and they are not 'whinging'.
They could be experiencing Restless Legs and to go home and request their folks research RLS on the net and to request their doctor to do same.
I understand the doctors are more acceptable and have more understanding of RLS than in my day, but there are also some that still feel it not to be a serious affliction. I to do something.
