Thank you, for your kind, and firm words. There is such a struggle to understand the boundaries that "normal" people have in expressing positive and negative emotions. I had to find out that I was not expressing my feelings correctly. I had been trained to believe this behavior was correct and necessary. I still fail more than I succeed when it comes to there being more than one right answer. However, I am making progress. I judge that progress by the reactions of my family, my children want to be by me and do more things with me, and my wife is a little jealous. It will balance out in time. Without MS, this would be impossible, without its members, catastrophic. My best wishes, thoughts, prayers and hope to you, who have supported me, that you too will find the joy of recovery and consistent progressive efforts that take us away from our training and into the waiting arms of loved ones, colleagues and friends.
