When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.
Without him, I am only another man.
With him, I am all-powerful.
He is loyalty itself.
He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.
He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.

Ah sure, why not continue Flashback Friday with another oldie... "Was it even asking? Or was my newly-acquired-best-buddy-in-neurology telling me what to do, instead of asking?
You simply cannot tell me what to do. I only moved to Ireland 2 years, 6 months, 12 days and about 23 hours ago. You cannot just ask me to change anything, let alone my lifestyle and my job! So I have MS. Big deal. I know what I need to do, and that is not changing my lifestyle."

It has been a great, uplifting two weeks. Busy, yes, but it was also about self-analysis and giving back. If I remember well – as you know my memories have a short lifespan – it was all about life with MS. I finally received meds for trigeminal neuralgia…

New blog post... "The first thing that popped up in my mind was, ‘How far do baby germs fly?’ I agree with my lateral sort of thinking in this case. Wondering how far people’s sneezes fly is usually not something I occupy myself with, unless of course when I’m sitting in warm surroundings where endemic bugs tend to live."

My very first blog post on my own blog... "The horses standing nearby looked at me as if I had taken too many happy pills. “Hugging trees, yeah baby, gimme more, gimme more!” I was running from tree to tree, shouting that I loved the ones with ivy all twisted around their trunks. They were just gigantically tall, magnificent and I just had to share!"

Flashback Friday continued... oldie about how a relationship with MS might not be for me
"However, I am not MS and MS is not me. It may reside inside my brain but that is where the relationship ends. I accept it is there, but it will not make me long for a relationship just to be in a ...
