"All things considering, pretty good."

[QUOTE][B]I hate when people look at you and say ” Well, you look ok.” If they could only know how much pain there is…[/B][/QUOTE] I haven’t had much of a social life the last 12 years, and normally when people ask me how I’m doing, I just say, “all things considering, pretty good.” I don’t get into what my diseases are because in a group of 6 people maybe 2 will half-way understand and pay attention to what I am saying. Then when I get to how weak my legs are as a result of my diseases, there will always be some idiot that will start laughing, pat me on the back, and say, “hell, I know exactly how you fell…I think they call that ‘old age’.” So, unless I have a really good friend that wants to know, I just keep saying, “all things considering, pretty good.”

The only people that understand how our legs feel like 2×4’s and our feet feel like dragging around two bricks at times are the people that have been through this catastrophic illness. Nobody else can put the realization of what we feel in their minds…it actually goes beyond their imagination to think of what “our” pains and feelings actually are.

Over the last 12 years I have learned something that I pass on occassionaly. Divine spiritual and family love, heals, restores, and uplifts life more than anything else on Earth.
