my idea is to keep my pain with me. use it. befriend it. it is YOUR grief, and a powerful emotional force that i haven't even made contact with yet.

glad, at least, that you can call it grief now, and not just a constant rational/irrational fear.

Hi Inthegrass;

My reason for bringing this post in the forefront was not to diminish or undermine the immense challenge that each respective person here faces to climb this incredulous journey we ("All") face.

Struggling to validate our mountainous emotions can be an objective and alternative way of looking at what progress that only we within ourselves can evaluate. We know more about ourselves than any therapist or shrink can analyze.

For thirty damned years I've been stuck among the thick of numerous trees of pain. I feel as though I am a child who has glanced at the entire forest for the first time in my life with a remote tinge of hope.

I know this might seem paradoxical, and I wish I could articulate this in a clearer manner of speaking. Just the same I am in no way insensitive to what you and the majority of us at M.S. are going through. I still fall into my rational/irrational fears and god forsaken ruts.

Life isn't fair for any of us. But sometimes we have to fight this pain within ourselves no matter what the cost.

Maybe these words are just empty nonsense for some.
I judge no man who is afflicted by their past painful hell.

Why ? Because I'm still fighting my way through it.

No affliction nor temptation, no guilt nor power of sin, no wounded spirit nor terrified conscious should induce us to despair comfort from God.

Today well lived...makes every tomorrow a vision of Hope.
