...I made the choice to learn how to accept that I am disabled let go of being a victim of my genetics let go of being angry about being born accept that my mother couldn't love me let go of being angry that my mother couldn't love me accept that life is what it is continue to learn how to love myself in spite of how much I have resented being born keep trying to push forward keep following my heart listen to my gut choose to trust myself by listening to my gut quiet my mind accept that I can and will make mistakes learn to stop judging myself do things i like to do and find more things I like to do
...accept that I'm not perfect and still have a long ways to go keep trying

...and I have to say that I'm surprised. I find myself having a better sense of self esteem that is consistent and reliable, no matter how I feel. My thinking has become less harsh and more accepting of me and of others. The quality of my every day experiences, I cannot deny, is improving.

Just wanted to share that.

who is this guy?
Magellan - i think some self-help guru has hacked into your account on MS!
seriously, dude - you are amazing - i wouldn't recognize you as the same man as before.
i am in awe.
good work - and keep it up!
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....

Looks like Magellan has tapped into his inner Han Solo and hasn't let go. Truly amazing to have watched Magellan's progress over time here.

Magellan, you are an inspiration to all of us. I've been away from MS for nearly a month, and this is my first post since I've been back because I couldn't *NOT* respond to your amazing recovery. Posting my own update now to join in on the fun.

Lord, it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But I won't let sorrow get me way down.

Thanks you guys.

Yeah, I'm still on this roller coaster. And yeah, I still have a couple days here and there where I feel like life is nothing but shit - but I seem to pull out of that after 2-3 days and I'm back to slaving and working away at recovery and inching forward.

And yes - cant - thanks for bringing laughter to me just now. Something significant for me to realize similarities between Hans Solo and myself. I'm still riding that wave.
