Dear You-Know-Who-You-Are

crossposted to my LJ and to gimp_vent here (check out the comments there as well!)

Thank you for your opinions. I am sure that these are much more accurate and valid than the knowledge of my GP, therapists and Neurologists. No, I am sure you are right that these mental/emotional symptoms are under my control and that I should not blame the Multiple Sclerosis for them, despite the experience and knowledge of the aforementioned medical experts. As many people have said in the past (and so must, of course, be right due to their sheer body of numbers), I merely need to pull myself together and learn to control my emotions. The fact that the MS is gradually eating away at many parts of my brain and spinal cord (especially in the areas of memory and emotional control/lability, in my case) can be ignored - it is merely the case that I need to be better at Mind-Over-Matter than I currently am. Now, why didn't I or my doctors think of that in the last ten years since I was diagnosed?

No love, Me.
