Don't feel so bad.

MS is only one part of me, the rest is also a pain. I may have explained my burden before, but my memory fails me. We all have a burden to bare, it weighs deeply upon us all.
I sometimes wonder why I haven’t done away with myself. The truth is, I actually enjoy living, even with all my problems.
I have MS, also ME. On top of that, I have Oesophageal reflux disease, IBS, cervical spondylitis, partial deafness, reactive depression, folliculitis, erectile disfunction, diplopia and ghosting, arthritis, a terrible sense of humour, bad taste in women.
All this, but I continue to laugh.

Why? I ask myself.

It’s because I still value myself. I may not be perfect, but I am still a human being. Worthy of love and understanding.

I’m a little pissed now, as it’s the only way I can get sleepand a release from the pain I feel from the effects of all this shite.

I’m sure that I have forgotten something else I suffer with, but is that not enough?

I still have the resolve to get through this, hopefully. I just hope that all of you can give yourself the strength to do the same, with all that challenges you.

I still consider myself lucky. I should have died during my military service, indeed I nearly did. Only the help of the doctors and nurses saved me. So, who am I to complain now?

I am still here!

Moaning and miserable, but hyappy to be doing that.

If at times I get a little down and miserable, maybe you can understand now. I’m sorry if I bitch, but I and sometimes we, are allowed to. Life is a bitch! But, you do get used to it.
