MS is sort of like an abusive spouse.
Which would clearly make me a battered woman.
I woke up today and got out of bed, only to have to climb on the couch 5 minutes later and remain there for the rest of the day. At some point, I started to think "what did I do to bring this on?" And then I realized:
nothing. at. all.
Sometimes it's clear why a symptom flair-up occurs. I've pushed myself too hard - physically, emotionally, whatever... or maybe I just haven't been sleeping well..... or maybe the stress is just getting the better of me...
Sometimes MS hits me because of something I have done.
Sometimes it hits me for no reason whatsoever.
(It's almost like I can hear it muttering "see what you made me do to you....?")
I only wish I could hit MS back. I would so be Jennifer Lopez in that movie "Enough" where she goes all bad ass and kills her abusive/crazy/stalker husband. Except I would clearly have better hair and bigger boobs. But wouldn't that make it a better scene anyway?
That would be so bad ass.
(Okay, I have to get off the computer before MS catches me and throws me down a flight of stairs.)
((Send help. Please.))
