So, what does dealing with it mean for you, how do you translate that into action, can you describe it for us?
Taking care of business. I have always been a stubborn person. Nobody is going to tell me what I can or can not do. In fact, if you try to tell me I can't do something, I will do it twice and take a picture! Lol. Although there are times that MS changes things, I try to live my life like it's not there. I must be doing something right, because I never cancel plans and I make a lot of them.
With all my limits, I just keep playing mind games, I amuse myself with the internet, learning about new things. I love that when I find something I dont know about I can google it right away and get my questions answered. I seem now to be a bottomless pit for knowledge, the more I know the less I know, there si so much information at my fingertips, i keep playing with important stuff and silly stuff too. Like, if i like a movie star I google the bio to find out about that person, or words, like kerfuffle, a silly sounding word. Or my emailpals that I have, that i keep in touch with. I am fortunate, being homebound but still being in touch with family and friends around the world, cool, I dont have to go to the post office to send a letter, i dont even have to go to the mailbox. Head stuff, cause that is all I got left, so all the time, I keep playing mind games, It aint about what I aint got, it's all about what I got, the rest doesnt matter, as long as I can do something with what I got, giggle, lol, and ha ha too, silly say me to you, silly should you be too.
Dealing with it takes many shapes and forms for me. Too often i overdo it. Everyday is but a challenge to get the most out of the second chance at life i woke up with. Plans...try to avoid them at all cost lest i get disappointed or disappoint, like to call them ideas that would be spectacular if they play out. Love surprises usually. One foot in front of the other as i trudge the road to happy destiny. 365 days from now today will not matter because there will be new surprises....half the time i cannot remember if i ate breakfast so i possibly won't remember today a year from now. I have people who never let me forget things, many times it is unpleasant reminders of who i was then. Acceptance is the key to dealing with it for me, i can change myself and nobody else. Sometimes it is difficult to know the difference. I can only do the best i can do today, that being said what the H E double hockey sticks else can i do...lol
