My favorite is, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
Plato

Suzieq...if I remember correctly your doctors were doing some tests. Have any of them come back yet? What are they recommending?

My friend is testing a new drug, because of the results of bone degeneration due to tamoxifen.
I've always admired her courage...as I do yours.

Sue,
I was diagnosed with MS in 2002.

You are right not to let the negativity bring you down. Our society can make you feel less than whole without ever blatantly saying anything. It is all so subtle.

Let us know how you are doing. Your emotional strnegth is as important now as your physical health.

Good Luck to you.

If, I lived closer I would take you to the doctors and shopping...how exasperating that must be. Is your family close-by to help when you have appointments?
You have a strong courageous spirit, wish I could be there, to give you rides, to be that friend that holds your hand...while you go through this trial.
Day by day...they do say laughter is the best medicine...but, I'm counting on prayer.

Patty, thanks for jumping in and lending some comfort.

My husband is an optometrist and does occasional home visits. He visited a 52 year-old man the other day who has MS. He told my hubby that his computer is his lifeline. What did we do without them?

I hope you are managing well with your MS.

Sue,

I wish I could come down there and help you out. I know what it feels like to be grounded like that.

Chuck and I manage a group of volunteer drivers who take cancer patients to their appointments. I've been wondering if there are services for others who need them as well. I'm going to find out, because it not, there should be.

I saw an experiment on TV yesterday where they tracked brain activity on a patient undergoing a frightening experience. When her husband held her hand, her brain waves calmed considerably.

It's amazing what just a hand to hold can mean.

Absolutely, Smile!

I firmly believe I would never have made it through radiation if my husband hadn't been there with me every step of the way.

Sue, you're going to be fine no matter what happens, because you have all the things you need to survive anything.

Hugs to you!

And for those without a mate we can offer a cyber hand to hold onto. It's not the same, but I'm sure it will help.

That's what friends are for, Smile. And not just on line. Many of those Chuck drives to their doctor's appointments are alone for one reason or another. Reaching out a hand to help is what we've both just always done. Which probably made it a lot easier to be caregivers for each other.

smile, we're back to the topic of being touched. haven't we talked aobut this before? It's so true. I was reading in a book this week people who give four hugs a day are typically very healthy people. Now which book was that? Gosh my memory is bad...
