If you have a friend or family member with MS or (insert any “chronic” bullshit here), chances are they’re getting pretty shit full of it by now. Especially if they have other things in their life that needs far more attention. Like my wife of 20 years having cancer and the uncertainty of it all. I, am personally at that stage.
It’s one thing to wake up every morning knowing you ain’t the prettiest person on the planets…or the smartest, or wealthiest. Makeup, books, and spending habits can alter those realities. But waking up every single day knowing a limitation will need to be worked around, and that tomorrow will be the same…or worse…that’s the reason you don’t see commercials for drugs on TV that mention that part, or books written about it sold at Barnes and Noble.
We become absolute pros at mirroring that peaceful image you see of a duck in the water, all the while there’s a flurry of shit going on under the surface to make it look like the duck is just floating along life all Skittles and Rainbows. All because we don’t want to be THAT person who either 1. Complains about it all the time or 2. Sees that look of sorrow in their family and friends eyes that you are screwed…maybe somehow pitied. And there’s the double edge sword to that level of expertise #MultipleSclerosis #BoneCancers #tired
