My response on tumblr:

Still amazing. My diagnosis of multiple sclerosis at age 30 after 21 years (or more, in retrospect when discussing my medical history with my diagnosing neurologist) of symptoms and being told it was all in my head (well, yes, it is a disease of the nervous system) was a HUGE relief because now I knew that not everyone felt like this and I was not useless because I just could not cope. IT WAS REAL. I identify with this monologue COMPLETELY. She speaks for me.
