One of my major goals for 2007 is to try to accept the limitations my health creates.
Therefore, it's with great reluctance, that I've had to resign from being a local committee member with the MS Society, and editor/writer of our local newsletter :-( .
This wasn't an easy decision to make, especially as in doing so I had to acknowledge the reasons why it became necessary in the first place: I don't feel reliable or well enough and I loathe 'letting people down'. I haven't made it to a (monthly) committee meeting since Oct '06 and it doesn't look like things are going to change any time soon.
I last published a newsletter in the Autumn, and I struggled to do this. My hands have remained numb since Aug '06, and I've had permanent nausea/dizzyness since October.
My aim is to achieve the goal with my health in 2007, so that at some point in the future I'll be able to take up a position in the committee again - except stronger and reliable. I want to be able to help other people, rather than need help from other people.
So, there you have it. First difficult decision of 2007 made. Next I have the neurologist appointment at the beginning of Feb...
