What will U do when the cure is found?[Frivolous topic!]

Postby Wonderfulworld » Mon Mar 12, 2007 11:37 am

Ok, I need cheering up today.
:lol:
What will you do when they find THE cure for MS?

I think I will streak down my road, lipoatrophy and all, singing Nina Simone "Feelin' good".
Wot about u?

Oh and I might be drinking from a bottle of champagne in between the chorus!

:lol: :lol:

WW,
what a wonderful idea. I don't know where I'd start but how's about this: Once my dodgy leg was back to normal I'd spend a small fortune on shoes, a pre ms passion, and slink around in stilletoes and skirts, I'd dance and dance and dance and embarass my children with my efforts, I'd wrap my faithful orthotic in tissue paper as a reminder, I'd race up the stairs at the Emirates stadium instead of passing through the scrutiny of those who check that I'm deserving of the lift service, I'd bid a fond farewell to the doctors who have cared for me along the way, I'd go to see the gorillas in Borneo no longer scared of the physical challenges, I'd start running over Hampstead Heath with my dog at my side and the wind in my hair and keep on running until my lungs feel like bursting!
This is actually making me feel quite teary.

Well i would

First thank God for the strength he gave all of us to go on while waiting. Then I would dance, dance, dance as if it were 1999. Next would be big hugs and kisses to the short list of those who really gave a shit. Finally I would get in a good work out at the gym and not worry that I was causing a relapse.

O Boy - I can hardly wait :?

I would run with my 5 year old son, who keeps asking me when are they going to fix me so we can have a race.

I would take a leave from work and do everything and anything I've been afraid of. Wearing heels, driving long distances, exercising, traveling, having children-just finally being free. I didn't take advantage of my life pre-MS. I would definitely make up for that. I agree with Muu, just the thought has made me teary. Although I know then I will be crying tears of joy :D

One of the two things I would like to do first is to go shopping without my husband. He is always in a hurry and I would like to leave him at home so I can shop as long as I like.

Second, I would like to go to London and have bromley show me the city when I could get around better.

WOW, that is a topic that could get me going for a long time. The first thing I would do is find a nice snowy hill to do some moguls and ski until my legs would burn. Then, it would be time to dance in the after ski lounge. Mmm, I can just imagine the atmosphere, the music, a cool drink without risking to loose my balance, staying up late without risking to ruin the next day, hugging all my friends and relatives who would be so happy for me. What a nice thought. That was a good topic WW! tale care and bring this up again every 2 months or so. hihi. Carole

Oh boy...what a great topic! The tears are just rolling reading all your comments. I think I would just breathe again. Like I used to. Without worring. One nice deep breath knowing that I am back in control again. I would spend time with family and friends that cared and just laugh from the bottom of my heart and not have that little voice that says "you better do what you want to now because you never know how you will be tomorrow." Thanx for this...it was really nice to dream with all of you :D .

Ahhh...what a great thought. I do truly believe we will see a cure in our lifetime.

Today I heard there are 400,000 of us....altho I think this number is probably low.

I think we should all meet somewhere tropical and have one big celebration!

:D

I need this today bad. I had my third "bed wetting" incident last night and I'm just having a shit day. I would have an enormous cookout and bonfire at my place and get drunk. I haven't been able to drink hardly at all in the last three or so years of bad dizziness and I miss it! Truthfully I wouldn't change my day to day that much since having this shit has caused me to take the type of care of myself that I should have been taking all along.

I would also just cry and cry and hold my wife and daughter for about a day. Then I would start playing racquetball again and try and win the 40+ national championship!
