Dear World,



I recently celebrated 60 years of being a part of you. For the most part, my experiences have been good—a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis at age 39 notwithstanding— and I am very grateful for whatever meager successes I have enjoyed, and especially so for all the people who have influenced my life thus far in my journey. This, of course, would include the influence of my parents and grandparents who raised me to value integrity, hard, honest work, and that my life is a gift of God and should be lived in such a way that He is honored above all else. While far from any level of perfection, I have always sought to sustain these principles as my daily modus operandi, and I seek the grace and interaction of God to make my life an example worthy of following by those with whom I am privileged to work.

Thanks Doug for sharing. How does the MS affect you now?

I am very stable, and if you were to see me, you wouldn’t have any idea that I’m dealing with MS. So I am still able to walk/be on my feet, though not for very long period of time, after about an hour or so I’m pretty much wiped out!

My symptoms are largely not visible so, as I’ve said, unless you know of my condition you wouldn’t be able to tell.

That's similar to me but for different reasons. I have sciatica, stenosis of lumbar spine, plantar fasciitis and peroneal tendonitis.

That is quite a plate of pain you have. Yours sounds much more painful than mine to deal with. My greatest "pain" issue is muscle burning sensations, which I deal with daily, but is relieved by sitting down. Yours, especially the sciatica, is a more chronic pain and experience. I am sorry that you have to endure such discomfort.
