Orange is the official color for MS. it is also one of the most vibrant colors in nature. But MS is not natural and I don’t particularly like it for that reason in particular and for a great many other reasons. I will list some of those reasons here.
It is a mean motherfucker.
It sucks out all my strength.
It makes me forget what I was thinking
It makes me drop to my knees at any moment of the day.
It won’t listen to what I have to say.
It’s ugly and doesn’t match any of my clothing.
It’s a pain in my ass, my head, my legs, my back, my shoulders……….
It looks pathetic in my wheelchair.
It makes me feel dizzy, weird, detached from the rest of the world, lonely, lonesome, and alone.
It makes me look pale and wan when I wear the color orange.
Those are just a few of the reasons why MS is so inconvenient. Each of us with multiple sclerosis has her own list and even mine could be a lot longer. But I won’t bore you with any more additions to this list. Suffice it to say that this disease is a goddam beast and I am just sick to death of it. I’m tired of talking about it, thinking about it, worrying about it is certainly writing about it. So that’s it for today.
Please take a look at the website for the book that I have written, Potty Mouth which will be released sometime towards the end of May. It is entitled Potty Mouth for a reason as you may be able to tell from this post. But that’s just the way it is when you have a reason to curse every day. Thank you for looking.
