I Have Issues

Multiple Sclerosis

 

IssuesA friend told me of her recent troubles.

“I have some issues I must deal with,” she said.

This Odd Sock just stood there nodding his mammoth, brain-case in agreement like a bobbing-head doll.

 

I wasn’t nodding because I agreed she had issues—it was more of a nod of empathy.  I could relate to her situation because I too have issues (shocking as you thought I was perfect!).

I have issues like YOU have issues.

Sure, most of us reading this dribble have multiple sclerosis, that’s a given.

But MS just happens to be an issue “side-order” on your buffet of life.

There are so many other problems we may be dealing with, our buffet is large enough to make Golden Corral envious!

 

Besides MS, many of us have other health issues that we contend with each day (I for one have an itchy rash that..ah..um…just forget it).

 

Employment issues, debt, relationships, family problems, car repairs, marital issues, housing, doctor bills, addictions…the list can go on and on.

Collectively, these issues can loom larger than Snooki’s bar tab!

 

 

But my friend had the right perspective.

She said she would tackle one issue at a time.  That’s all she can do.

Really, that’s all EACH of us can do.  Just take on one problem at a time.  Deal with each individual hurdle as best we can–and move on to the next one.

 

They nod in agreement.

They nod in agreement.

 

What perspective do you take in dealing with everything in your life?

Share the method to your madness as your words may be the solution someone else has been searching for!

 

Keep in mind—we are only human.  And some of us are just Odd Socks!

    I laugh, I make fun of myself (and I’ll admit it…others) and occassionaly (VERY occassionaly!) I have a solo pity party. I have been living with MS for 25 years so I have been through every emotion there is to deal with it and I have settled on “What ever, laugh as often as you can” as the emotion of choice. Occasionaly that emotion is overrun by the emotion “WTF!” But I have good support from family and friends (and the occasional cane) so I count myself as lucky!! :)

    Personally, long before I was MSed, I had read a lot of motivational books and had attended a few seminars. I agree that the approach to life as a “one thing at a time” is the most sane. But, it seems, problems/issues come in groups, multitudes. So, in order to stay sane, I have found that even though it takes a lot of practice. What helps me is: when I get up in the morning, I say “THANK YOU”, just softly, putting my self together for the day. I donot tell anyone if I feel lousy (with MS that a given-I personally have sight issues that do get better as the day wears on) its just negative and to voice it just gives it more attention. I then take a brief moment and figure out what is the first thing to do/deal with today.

    Given that the flavor of challenges that living with MS presents… I mean, offers… I mean, slaps one in the face with, I’m prone to slipping in to modes of abstract observational humor. 

    I personally find it gratifying two splice words together in an nonsensical fashion to (attempt) to express how I experience reality.  For example it’s a lot easier to explain what feeling like a “trip-bot” is like than what foot drop is like. 

    Life with MS is rarely graceful. Why should my humor about challenges with it be otherwise?
