The Nerve

Once, I had a great conversation with a friend about the question:

“Does your nervous system thrive on PEACE or does it prefer ECSTASY?”

Before MS, I think I may have answered that question differently than I would today.

As a teenager and young adult, the thing seemed to be :’ GIVE ME MORE!  MORE!  BETTER!  NOW!’

As a 54 year old woman with MS it is: “Take my nervous system and carefully lay it down on a rose-colored satin coverlet and sit close to me as we whisper about life and love and the ten thousand things.”
