It has been a couple of days since I have been on to write anything. There have been quite a few things going through my mind. I have been working with my thoughts so that's why I haven't written. I am in about the same place, but am working so when I work, it forces me to get back to things that I hold important to me.
This morning I had the pleasure of speaking with someone newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. What a wonderful conversation it was - at least for me. I don't know what she took from it, but it is amazing how much I gained from her. Each person with MS gets it in a different way than the other. I think the hardest thing for her as well as myself was the fact that others don't understand it. I was telling her how I myself feel when I go out to WalMart and park in a handicap parking space and see people behind me drive my and later get out of there car with a wheelchair. The looks on their face is that of - You aren't disabled because I don't see your wheelchair. It is amazing to me how people who are total strangers are able to be so insensitive. It is also amazing that people who care and love us most are also insensitive as they don't have the slightest clue of it all! Well, considering I am at work, I will finish this post later on, but I had to get this much out!
