I have have at least 3/4 of those…and MS. Damn it. I probably have Epstien-Barr too, but I can not verify that at this time.
If only I had known in my 20’s that I shouldn’t smoke…oh wait, I did. Stupid me for not listening to myself, society, and science. So stupid on my part. I did give it up though.
Perhaps if I didn’t spend so much time in my basement playing video games I’d have gotten enough D3 (sunlight) to ward off the multiple sclerosis.
And being a dude should’ve helped,. but it didn’t. Just like me to buck the trend. Something I’ve been doing my entire life.
And there in lies the problem with MS. One of the many actually. You’ll spend so much time thinking how/why did I get this, what did I do to deserve this? Well, in my case at least, it won’t help to contemplate those things. I have MS. There is no going back to a time when I didn’t have MS (or at least know it). It is impossible as time travel, so I do not think pondering how or why it has happend will be of any benefit. Especially since there is no definitive answer at this time.
Of which I can be sure is that I do have a diagnosed case of Multiple Sclerosis. There is only one thing to do now.
That means a few simple things:
1.) Taking care of myeself
2.) Take my MS medication as prescribed.
3.) Exercise and stretch.
4.) Try to maintain a + attitude.
Don’t bother looking back, it only leads you to a what-if scenario that won’t be at all beneficial to the current scenario.
