I made it through the final semester of college and received my BA, and I will be going for my Masters. I depend more on my chair now, because I fall far to often, but I know I am one of the blessed ones. I have MS yes, but I am able to function. And despite my weakness I live a good life.
My energy level has been pretty good too, I make sure I get the rest I need when I need it, and I try not to overdo it although that is not always possible. I know though that it is by the Grace of God I am doing as well as I am.
When people act as if I should sit around feeling sorry for myself because I depend on this chair now more than I did at first, I just want to scream. This chair is a tool that helps me get through the day, not some kind of punishment to rail at God for.
I know that I am blessed to have made it this far, that I should not sit around feeling sorry for myself, because the truth is I have a good life. Whether I live it sitting in this chair, or walking through life, the fact that I am alive and doing well so I am going to make sure I look at the many blessings I have in this life.
