Forgive me if this is in the wrong location

I always find it hard to talk about things with strangers and I sometimes tend to ramble so I apologize in advance in cause I do.

I sometimes wonder why things happen and I don't like thinking why me but sometimes I cannot help it, like today I am reminded of when I first found out I had MS and a few months later I find out my long term Girlfriend started cheating on me ...

Honestly pretty terrified in Dallas

I'm a 44 year old male in good health. I exercise regularly. My mother has has MS for 33 years.

I am tired of all the breakthroughs

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/ms-gene-ubc-1.3612025

I am really tired of hearing about all the breakthroughs in MS that never come to anything. The URL above is a real story, like that of Dr. Zamboni, about a woman who was ridiculed for 40 years. Like Dr. Paulo Zamboni, she had a real personal connection to MS, which motivated her work.

Now she has found a genetic cause for progressive MS. This news will reverberate throughout the medical and scientific worlds. ...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/06/02/stanford-researchers-stunned-by-stem-cell-experiment-that-helped-stroke-patient-walk/

LOL, I should be happy but this gets me very mad. I have been supposed to be in a study similar to this, but using the good stuff - embryonic stem cells, I have been waiting for the last two years. BUT, the researcher is having trouble getting the money in order for the university to approve the ...
