Coulnt read passed day 3. Very sad had to write in first place. Realise MS makes a difference to life and is not nice but it is worse with anger and eats away. If thought there is always somebody worse off it does help.

Hey there,

So I found your blog when I was looking for MS blogs and other MS related info. and such because I got diagnosed a week and a half ago. I'm 16 with my entire life ahead of me. Weirdly, I love reading you depressing blog. Seeing all that negative only forces me to want to disagree (or something) so I find the positive... the "silver lining" if you will.

So thank you for your dreary blogs. They're helping me to cope with this unfortunate disease.

Cheers and Merry Christmas!

Well, call me strange, but I was LOL the whole way. The only downside is I'll never be able to hear or sing this carol in quite the same way. That's okay. We have to find humor where we can. Isn't that what the best comedians do?

I love this. You get it exactly right. Some days, no matter what you've got going on that's positive, this MS shit just sucks.

Ha, with a little tweaking, I could sooo use this for my fibromyalgia.
