The good news, the bad news, and the worst news

The good news is that I'm not imagining things, I'm not crazy, and I'm not being over-dramatic.

The bad news is that I'm not imagining things, I'm not crazy, and I'm not being over-dramatic.

The neuropsych testing shows a significant gap between my intelligence and my recall and speed of processing. It's more than likely that it's secondary to the MS.

So now I need to learn how to manage all this and still stay employed.

The worst news is that one of my dearest friends was just diagnosed with MS. I hate this damn disease.

I had a witty remark about Regarding Henry ... but then I put myself in your shoes. I hate this disease for doing that to you.

I hate it, too.

There have been a couple of books out lately about memory loss and how boomers are dealing with it. One book is "Written in Sand."

Stress doesn't help, of course. It's astounding how much is does f*ck up your memory and processing abilities.

((Hugs, too))

Hugs, sweetie!

Does Secondary to MS mean that it's caused by the MS? Or is there some other fun happening in your noodle?

You are a very loved person, and I hope you can find some fun to have this weekend.

More hugs!

Thanks for the support, everyone.

Spunky, what's Regarding Henry? Your joke would have whizzed right over my head had you made it.

HL, "secondary to the MS" means the MS caused it.

*hugs* for everyone, and thanks again.
