"It's the MS, Stupid!"
I'm stealing from the Clinton 1992 campaign phrase, "It's the Economy, Stupid!" That phrase was posted in Clinton campaign headquarters to remind people about the candidate's basic message and to stay focused and on point. A similar phrase, "Keep it simple, Stupid!" also help people stay focused on the point.
So I need a poster in my room that says, "It's the MS, Stupid!" I can't believe that I continue to look for reasons other than MS for my quirky health problems, specifically fatigue. No wonder doctors don't get it - I've steered them in opposite directions when I've gone to them complaining about fatigue. I've asked for blood work, check the thyroid, how are my hormone levels, am I anemic. When you ask someone to look for a fire in the western sky, don't be surprised when they don't find it in the kitchen in the east. (That doesn't make sense but I'm not hitting the backspace.)
So this is a message to me (I do read my own blog): Joan, it's the MS, stupid!
