You know, you've spent no real time in the wonderful world of MS and yet, you write some really unfair and unpleasant observations about people who have MS.
You jump up and down on any discussion here. This used to be a great message board. TIMS, the place to go for really decent discussion about MS.
Instead it's just stressful post after post about how you are defeating these awful sceptics.
Have you not an ounce of compassion - if not for the readers who haven't been tested, but for people for whom this procedure hasn't worked?
You've provoked me out from lurkdom into posting this because finally, you've just gone too far.
You have a life. Lucky you. You don't have MS.
It's not a war. Stop it. Discuss by all means, but why are you constantly allowed to get away with remarks which would be removed at a more civilised forum than this one has become.
It must be so nice not to have MS and tell all of us who do, just how to fix it.
MS is a more complex disease than you imagine it is and how do I know?
I've been living with this sod of a disease for over 15 years and I've read and read as much as I can.
The more I read, the more complex it becomes.
Please. Give it a rest? This is not a warzone. But it sure as hell feels like one.
^ let them keep believing these things and digging their own graves that they will have to lie in one day when we get to all say "I told you so" ...
I have a sneaking suspicion deep down they know it's not placebo (there are too many accounts of the same thing at this point, people who have had the same symptom for years with nothing helping, then they are liberated and it is gone). I also have a sneaking suspicion that they know there is something to CCSVI ...
But since they are "skeptics" they won't admit it for whatever reason. Be it financial gain (potentially in the case of Colin Rose, or if they have a job - neurologist or drug company marketing manager that CCSVI would potentially impact), or be it sheer ignorance.
As more and more accounts tell the same story though, do you notice they've gone from "skeptic" to hard entrenched in their "opposition" and keep digging their grave deeper and deeper, making it harder to one day climb out of? They keep pointing to the same 5 or 6 stale arguments ... we're all seeing through them more and more, and they aren't holding the same water they once did.
2011 is going to be a big year for CCSVI ...
... and so will 2012, 2013, 2014 ...
