Good point you make and thank you for it. I agree, our reactions to each other here are influenced by why we're here. It's good to realize this and it's definitely helpful to remember where we are coming from and what we are ALL dealing with when things do get heated. Keeping an image of that shared "hurt child" inside us all and reminding each other of this child's presence at such times builds a stronger MS community.
I see recovery as a lifelong journey rather than a final destination, a journey, though, which can have many successes along the way.
