…almost…

There are so many things the MS has taught me. I believe the most important being compassion. I truly believed I had a great deal of compassion before my MS diagnosis but I must say…I had no idea what it was like to live with chronic pain. Theres no way to know to what degree someone is suffering. There really is no gauge.

I have been told my whole life that I had a high tolerance for pain. On number of occasions doctors were perplexed at my ability to walk into their office when they believed I shouldn’t have been able to. But these last few months the pain has had me on the floor in a fetal position more than one occasion. I have referrals to a hundred different specialists & exams waiting to be approved by the insurance company (they’re estimating 3-4 weeks for approvals). Apparently the Obamacare system albeit fantastic for existing is just plain overwhelmed with its share of sick peoples. Makes sense.

Keith and I are still struggling to stay afloat financially. He continues to look for work and is currently in the process of obtaining some writing jobs. ┬áThis area is quite beautiful but pretty expensive to live. It doesn’t seem to offer what we need or want. It is a good place to recharge and reassess. We are eternally grateful to our family and friends who have supported us and continue to believe in us. Thank You.
