Often I am asked why I don’t write about MS treatments and meds. So I thought I would write a post explaining why that is.
I have been told and even attacked for the fact that I don’t talk about or get involved in discussions on the subject in groups how can I raise awareness. These people have the right to their opinions and I understand where they are coming from. I do not discourage any one from comments, questions, or opinions. In fact I welcome them. Difference of opinion are often something to learn from. A new way to see things or at least an understanding of where a person is coming from.
Talking about treatments and meds are valuable topics. I agree that people need to be informed and that knowing others experiences with treatments are of help. I read about those experiences myself.
The reason I don’t write about it is simply because it is not what I choose to focus on. That is just who I am. I focus more on the mind I guess you could say. I write about my experiences and how MS has affected my life. How it has changed me as a person. What I have learned. I write from the heart and most of the time I don’t even know what I’m going to write until I start writing.
That is what has been so great about this journey since starting my blog. We all express ourselves differently. There is no right or wrong way! Only what is right for us. Will my writing change at some point to include discussion of treatments? Who knows! For now this is what is right for me. This is my way.
