I was fortunate enough to get to write an article in our statewide newspaper about parents with disabilities (it runs today in the FamilyStyle section). I was even more fortunate to get to talk to two fellow MSers who have been giving this disease hell for far longer than I.
It’s encouraging to see these comrades as they confidently, successfully make their way through life, even with the roadblocks multiple sclerosis keeps putting up.
They just smash them down. Or maneuver around them. They certainly don’t let it stop them for long.
Which is more than I can say for me right about now.
We all get sidelined from time to time. I feel like I’m constantly recovering/trying to get back on the right path.
I’ve really gotten off track with my treatment, but I don’t think I’ve crossed the Rubicon just yet.
We’re going at a breakneck pace right now — so much happening: Nick starts a new job next week, I have several projects in the loop, our house is a constant work in progress.
It’s all so exhilarating, to be sure, but so draining.
At least I did take time to smell the roses (or tulips, as it were).
