When I lost the ability to walk normally early in my diagnosis, it forced me to change my perspective. I'd never considered the awesome, intricate, complex act that walking is. I'd never felt gratitude for the transformative effect of thought on nerves and muscles and tendons and ligaments. As steroids and time took me from relapse to remittance, I experienced walking as I never had before. A new perspective changed everything and I for the first time appreciated the awesome, intricate, magic dance walking was. No longer an automatic, simple, basic unconscious act to take for granted. Perspective changes everything.
.....and time! Okay, I went about 25 seconds over. I even managed to relate it to MS. Win!
