Gratitude is defined as the state of gratefulness; thankful, appreciation

Fortunate is defined as bringing something good and unforeseen; auspicious, having unexpected good fortune, lucky.

I will never be grateful for having any part of MS, not even the part that shows me I'm not as bad off as someone else with the same disease.

I, however, feel extremely fortunate that I don't have the worst of what this disease can throw at a person.

Gratitude is for the works and acts of people, fortunate is for those things no one, including me, have any control over.

If you have a problem with that, that's your problem to deal with.

If I ask for advice on a particular subject I'll take what I get, but don't you ever tell me how I should feel about something just because you think I should be looking at the world a different way. I really don't care what you think of my life. I'm just here telling it as it is, not as you think it should be.

Also, jesusfreaks who keep sending me blog replies telling me to pray and give my life over to your personal lord and saviour: I will keep deleting your replies unread.

Atheist is not a joke and it's not meant as a personal challenge to your conversion skills. As I said right up there, I'm telling it as it is, not as you think it should be. Kindly, go sell your crazy somewhere else. We're all full up here.

I had something totally different I wanted to talk about, but the replies to my last post (of which only one was suitable for publishing) just made me so angry at humans (again) that I just had to say something (again) about the arrogant nature of humanity. We all think that our particular world view is best for everyone. Though, I'm pretty sure that I don't want to live in a world full of people who think like me. Maybe just 20%, so the species will be propagated, and someone else can do the science and math things required.

  1. But you should feel grateful and thank god every day for having MS and all the wonderful things you have learned as a result...NOT! I have never spoken to anyone who actually HAS MS who feels that way. MS sucks! It sucks that anyone has it and it especially sucks when you have it. There is NO bright side. Yes, not having the absolute worst form of the disease is better than having the worst form but so many people don't have it at all that that is not such a great thing. Those people will leave you alone after a while though. They don't even have the courage of their convinctions enough to keep after us to have faith for more than a couple of conversations. THAT might be a bright side ;-)
