I have MS. Multiple sclerosis. Or maybe I just have one sclerose, because I feel pretty good. You may have heard the tagline “the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.” That sounds horrible! Thankfully for now, I have my own less-devastating, more ridiculous kind of MS. And I am glad to be the bearer-of-good-news regarding other “options” for an MS experience.
While certainly not devastation, what having this diagnosis of a chronic disease has meant for me is a ludicrous number of doctor visits, tests, clinical trials and medications. Ludicrous, because, again, I do feel ok. And also because much of it I have brought on voluntarily, in doing my best to stay feeling well.
Thirteen years into my diagnosis now, and after millions of crazy situations,
I find that the one thing I have become an expert at is laughing at my own predicaments.
So Magritte style: “Ceci n’est pas une blog.” I am using the “pages” here to post my “chapters,” as I meander my way towards … maybe a book, maybe just a bigger non-blog.
