My Mood: a new way to describe what MS is to me

Default a new way to describe what MS is to me

“MS is a fact in my life. So is my grey hair and my sense of humor and my smile and my age and... Well, you get the idea. Yes, I have to consider the fact that I have MS when I make decisions about a huge variety of things. But it is only one 'fact' about me and the world I live in. I would be selling myself short if I put it at the top of the list or allowed my friends to limit me 'for my own good'.” From a blog about MS

http://blogs.webmd.com/living-with-m...-own-good.html

I love it! MS is simply a fact in my life, so what! And the rest of the blog talks about all the well intentined people that say to you "for your own good" blah, blah, blah!

MS is simply a fact in my life! my new mantra

That's good, Sassy.

I've heard people say, "It is what it is."

But "It's a fact of life" says it even better.



Unfortunately. *sigh

Sassy - you are so right. It does NOT define who we are! It's just part of our journey.

I really don't think about it that much, and that's the truth. I do what I can, and don't worry about what I can't.

not to go OT on you sass but how is your grandaughter?
i havn't read anything about her in a while, or is it just me.
didn't she have some kidney problem? is she ok now?

just wondering.

for me, MS is big in my life but doesn't control me. i work around it.
just like i did with the cancer. you just deal with whatever you're dealt and make the very best of it you can.

lala lalalalala live for today....dont worry about tomorrow hey hey ey...

thats what we have to do, it not always easy, thats for sure. I have a long way to go on mastering this at times

Thanks for your perspective, Sassy.

Judy, thanks for asking. Joslyn is doing great after her surgery. She was tested about 6 weeks after the surgery with all those &*(^ tests and they showed all her plumbing was working the way it should.

She has another test in May just to double check and then she doesn't have to go there any more unless something comes up in the future, which it shouldn't.

Now, have you got an hour for me to brag about her on other things too?

She's our little princess!
