And The Experts Say . . .



I always like to hear what the experts say because it makes me feel safe. I feel as if there is someone out there who actually knows what he or she is doing and while I may not understand what “they” are talking about, “they” do. At least I hope they do. When I see a picture of a scientist who is working on the conundrum that is multiple sclerosis I believe, I have faith, that someone who is skilled in an area that I cannot fathom, has the same goal as I do. I want a cure to this disease. I want a cure for myself and for the hundreds of thousands of people around this world. MS has been good for me in a very bizarre way but I want to be normal. I do not want to have to plan my day around my fatigue. I want to get out of my wheelchair. I want . . . I’m I woman, of course I WANT!

I was reading a MS Newsletter recently and I saw a picture of a Doctor who is researching the fatigue element of MS. I saw the face but I also saw something else. It is said that we will see what we want to see, change the illusion to correspond to what we need. I saw hope. I saw determination. I saw a cure. Am I seeing what I want to see? You betcha! I am also seeing through faith. You see I have faith. I believe without a doubt that a cure will be found and it will be through the determination of people like that Doctor I saw in the newsletter. It will also be through the determination of people like me and people like you who WILL NOT let this disease destroy us. We can be and we will be as strong as we have to be to survive and to strengthen our bodies and our minds. I am proud to be who I am today and I will be proud to stand before the world in the future and to shout the words “I am healed”. One day I will.

        Um…that sounds like your river’s aren’t like ours…crystal clear and drinkable (well, most of them anyway) 😀
        I tell you what, on that day you have an invitation to come over and do it off the Sydney Harbour Bridge….mind you, that would be some Swan dive… 😀

    I believe in the power of the mind, and one reason you cope so well with your MS is that you have this strength and belief. I also believe there will be cures for MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and some cancers. We are learning more about the genetics of diseases every day.
    Also – What Mark says above!! 😀

    I heard the river Thames is pretty dirty. Maybe it’s OK now. I like the idea of the Sydney bridge. It’s been a long time since I did any swan diving. Something to look forward to!
