May 29th - World MS Day is here! I've been so busy and also helping Cir with some MS issues, that it nearly passed us by without at least a comment.
I hope everyone has found their way to the website (link above will open in a new window) to add their motto. If you haven't, I believe there's still time. If you don't make it, it will at least be fun and inspirational to read those that are already on the website.
Awareness of MS is such a crucial piece of the puzzle to solving this enigma of a disease. It's amazing to me when I meet someone who has no idea what it is or they get it mixed up with something like muscular dystrophy.
Because I've lived with it as Cir's caregiver for most of my adult life, it is constantly on my mind and something I deal with daily. Cir is actually going through it and I watch as it eats at him day in and day out, sometimes to the point of being close to giving up.
Fortunately, he loves life so much that that point rarely comes about. I admire him so much for his love of life, his determination, his strength, and bravery. Today marks the eve of our anniversary, so is a special day for us as well. We have lived for 31 years with this third part(ner) in our marriage.
At its worst, it has never been an issue that pulled us apart. In spite of it, we have grown closer, stronger, and more deeply in love than ever before. If I could bear at least half of the burden of living with MS, I would, just to see the relief that would bring to him.
Instead, I will stand with him, support him, love him, and care for him, for as long as we have together - hopefully another 31 years.
Happy Anniversary my love and Happy World MS Day everyone!
