I did respond to your comments of 1 March, last week but for some reason my post was deleted. Arron assures me it was a hardware problem and had nothing to do with the post content. Nonetheless, I was pretty disappointed as I had put some time and effort into my response, and quite frankly I'm not sure I have the energy to go through it all again.
Basically, what I did want to say to you was that the decision as to whether or not an MSer gets married/ has kids etc will always be a personal one. I did say that some of my thoughts were tongue-in-cheek. The key issue I was trying to make was in terms of the broader concept that I regret not making more out of my 15 good years, after being dx with MS, before things really started to go pear-shaped.
You suggest that this is 'doom and gloom' - that's your choice. However I see myself as a reasonably proactive person who by good planning and management is trying to wring the most out of life despite all the crap MS require that we endure. Also, I'm as optimistic as anyone that an MS cure or cures are around the corner - but I don't believe we can just sit back and wait til the 'cavalry' arrives.
Regards & good luck,
