I was looking through the pictures from Bermuda, I was trying to see if I got a snap of the bus that hit me! I'd like to say this is odd, but this happens every time I go on vacation, or try to live life in the normal world. I don't see that I have much of a choice though, I'm not willing to give up going with the family, so for now just grin and take it. The wife and the kids understand it will happen, and they look for it. It's getting so my recovery time is longer and longer. I will be down probably until early next week I suppose, life is what it is.
My family is all down my sister's this weekend for the 4th. The sister has a beautiful place on the water, not too far from Ocean City, MD. She has a big party every year, we usually don't make it, mainly because of how I feel when I travel. It's 3 hours down to her house, that time in the car, added to the quick turn around of the 4th, doesn't make for a very pleasant trip. The bad part is, I don't think they understand why I don't go. That's tough, we were very close at one point, but time and distance take their toll, even the continents drifted apart! I was down the parents house a few weeks ago, saw the sister one day for about 30 minutes, hurts. I also have a brother that lives about a mile away as the crow flies. I haven't seen him for a couple of months, people tell me my MS makes him uncomfortable, sorry about that!
I think a lot, especially when I'm run down like I am today, when will this feeling not go away? I remember playing racquetball, about 20 years ago, had a great workout, one of those kind that I had that burning sensation all over my body. That feeling has not left since that day, not for one second. Is this near paralysis on my right side going to stay this way, this time, or will it be the next? I always heard, and always believed, knowledge was important, but the older I get, there are certain things I wish I wasn't so sure of.
