This posting won’t be prominent, as I am having my own theories for MY form of Multiple Sclerosis. Feel free to comment, but don’t expect me to reply to any comment. In 20(?) years with this disease and 6 years after the “official” diagnosis, I have built up my own perspective. Maybe not popular, but MY explanation and MY thoughts on MY disease.
Not just in my case, the origin of MS is psychic for me. I am seeing the starting point lying in extreme phases of psychic stress (no matter if it was professional and/or private) and in a special form of personality that in my opinion many patients are having in common.
This stress is taking overhand and manifests in the body. When we see a Doctor about it and get the diagnosis “Multiple Sclerosis”, the stress-factor gets even worse, because we have to realize, that modern medicine can’t help us.
After the Diagnosis
Myelin declines and the disease is getting worse. No help, no pills, no therapy will help us to get out of this misery. We have to find our very own, individual way to get out. That is not easy, in fact its freakin hard.
The potential Way-Out
I hate to say it (I really do), but everyone of us has to find her or his own way. In my theory calming down ones nerves is an important step. Nobody can tell us how to do that, but in my experience meditation, diet and sport are good ways to get closer to it.
There are thousands of ways to meditate and again its only you who can find your way. The good news is, that there are quite some people we can use as role models. The people I am seeing as an inspiration for myself are Prof. Dr. George Jelinek and Sven Böttcher (among count- and nameless others)
Maybe its most important to realize that its not our finale destiny to end up in some wheelchair and accept it. Its important to see it as maybe the biggest challenge of our lives, even change our personality if necessary and to not give up the fight.
The answer and the potential solution lies within ourselves and has to come from inside.
