Denial is not the worst place to be sometimes
That statement has haunted me all night because it seems oddly ironic and almost "deja-vuish" that I made almost the same comment in this same spot regarding my wife about four years ago.
I'm not especially religious but I'm convinced that my wife was blessed with mild MS which makes it hard to separate how much her completely ignoring MS has benefited her long term outcome. Then again maybe she's been doubly blessed by never having seen the full wrath of MS, which has left her able to ignore MS to begin with.
I guess my conviction that my wife's denial has been to her benefit should help convince me that hope, even if it eventually proves to have been false hope, does or at least can have benefit.
-sigh- Try being married for less than 3 months and then finding out that your hubby has MS. We had only known each other for a very short time before we agreed to marry.
His MS is not terrible yet, and he really is doing the whole 'denial' thing. Right up until he trips, falls, or limps because he has been walking for longer than 20 minutes.
I can't be in denial. I tend to deal with problems head on. This MS thing though, it's killing me. I don't know how to deal with it, and I am aware that CCSVI might not work,but I am still going to part with cash in the hopes that it MIGHT work. Also looking at LDN and antibiotics as a possible treatment option.
If I was in denial myself I think I could risk being in a happier place then where I find myself at the moment.
Sadly,I am a realist. Or,some might say, a cynic.
Take your pick
