Over the past few days, I've been seeing people I haven't seen in about 5 years. People who knew me at the start of this MS journey and who knew about the MS. Well, during the obligatory catching up, they've all remarked on how good I look or that I'm looking well.
Of course, they all mean well, and I guess it's technically a compliment. But the phrase sure rubs me the wrong way sometimes. The implication is that they don't expect me to look quite so healthy. And then there's the fact that they can't see the majority of my symptoms, and that list tells a different story!
It's really great to see these folks, though, and their care and concern always means a lot to me. So I'm just going to pretend that I really just look good enough to constantly warrant comment. And I'm going to celebrate it!
