Warning: A real life post….
In a bat of an eye, a second in time is all it takes for your world to be turned upside down. A wave of new emotions and a shift in priorities… can change your life forever.
Its a sad testimony really, how little we appreciate “normal” or our individual version of such things, until the point that our imperfect but regular routine is dramatically changed. Our perceptions of ourselves, and life in general, being totally redefined in the course of a spoken sentence.
I recieved such a sentence this week, and in my case, that sentence was short and to the point.
“Yes, the test results are here. Your test came back positive for MS. The Doctor would like you to schedule an appointment for this next week to talk about treatments.”
I’ve always thought of myself as a healthy person. Not so much I guess…
The initial shock was hard. I cried and cried and worried about what a burden I was destined to become to my family.. It was horrible.
Then the research into what “MS” is began. I’ve always been a “researcher” which is one of the reasons why this game took on such a fun notion for me, because there was so much, and so much to learn.
I’m feeling better, this diagnosis isn’t a death sentence for me. My case is at this point not advanced. Also there are things I can do in regards to diet that should help out even though modern medicine doesn’t accept it as being a proven form of treatment. It sounds like a balance between diet and medicine is the normal here.
There are people out there that are able to manage thier MS to the point of being symtom free, I pray that I am one of those, and have decided to put all I have into making that be the case for me. I am lucky that I have a great husband to stand behind me, and three beautiful small children that I want to be an active part of their lives.
Why am I posting here… well one… cause its my blog… and two because If there as anyone out there that starts wondering why I’m not posting as much, or why I haven’t done more, so they understand. I have so much enjoyed this game, and the great friends I have met along the way.. but..
I now have to take my health more serious, If I’m tired, I need to go to bed now, rather than think to myself “Oh, only 500 tnl, I’ll just stay up”. No longer a valid reason.
I have started another blog, about my real life, I know, I know, probably not as fun of a read, but to any interested, it is : http://sclason.wordpress.com
Please, if anything I urge you all to take care of yourself, take care of your health. When we are young, we think we are <Invincible>, but I’m telling you that can all change in a <Blink> of an eye.
I doubt this is the last of this blog, If I am able to healthfully balance the two, I’ll continue to play now and then.
❤ to all!
