Since I posted in another thread mentioning that I have M.S. and it came as a surprise
to some, I just thought I'd clarify a bit...
This is why I am so lousy at answering e mail, guys! This is why sometimes I miss answering
posts that are addressed to me, even though I try to keep up with them. Without warning
my vision might go all funky on me, hands go numb and its hard to type, you never know what
you'll be feeling from one day to the next.
I was diagnosed with M.S. last fall after a hospital stay and 2 months of testing. Most likely I have
had it for years, as I was misdiagnosed with something else before and now know better.
I posted about it on my website, here's the link if anyone wants more info. There
are also more links to info on Multiple Sclerosis in case anyone has a friend or loved
one with the disease and wants to understand it better.
Thanks to all who have given me such great support during the past months. My family has
totally ignored my situation and upheld their shunning despite my illness, as I know that they
have done to many of you with more serious ailments.
I'm not posting this to get attention, in fact it's not necessary for anybody to reply...I just wanted
everyone to know that if there's a lag in my replies or if I disappear a few days at a time its
due to circumstances beyond my control...not because I don't care. I'd hate to think
that anyone thought that I allowed time to pass between replies because I was rude or uncaring!
I will continue to try to keep up as best I can...I may have MS but it doesn't have me! I
participate as fully as I can on the good days...and sometimes on the bad days I just read. You
all are an inspiration to me, and I'm grateful that this forum exists.
