I just sent Harkoo/Joyce and email and in it, I commented on my belief those of us diagnosed with MS (MSers) are some of the "smartest and kindest" folks around. Now, certainly not EVERYONE diagnosed with MS fits that category (because I HAVE met some MS-A-holes in my time...LOL)...but I DO believe the disease either attacks "smart and kind" people or the disease creates "smart and kind" folks! :)
I am always amazed when I read comments left here and on other thoughtful MS blogs (not that BrainCheese fits into that category: thoughtful..."thought" I should clarify!) at just how much wisdom, understanding, humor, patience, and endurance exists among the MS Club members. We seem to be a very accepting group, yet on fire about our personal beliefs at the same time...this to me is the definition of "wisdom".
Many of you shared your personal stories and experiences regarding "right to die" issues surrounding family/friends...some of you commented on your trepidation regarding the topic...and still some of you, made poignant and even humorous comments to add brevity to the topic. But NONE OF YOU pointed a condemning finger, which I find both heart-warming and fascinating! This has always been one of my goals for this blog: To provide a place where opinions/concerns/topics about life and living with MS can be discussed without fear of retribution.
So, I pose a NEW question to each of you...How has MS changed YOUR inner wisdom? What has it brought into your life that might not have come along without the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, good or bad (besides numbness, pain, etc., MDMHVONPA!)? And for those of you wonderful souls WITHOUT MS who comment here, what is your connection to Multiple Sclerosis and how has that connection influenced your life?
Those of you who comment here, astonish me...I have faith you can tackle this question, too! And for those of you who CONTINUE to do a Google search on "Fornication Under Consent Of The King", you are in the WRONG place, Perv!...LOL...
