    Default I terrorized another person with MS today

    The ocean was nearly flat today. Me and two surf buddies were just lying on our board laughing and paddling around.
    Some 36ish old attractive woman was floating and gradually making her way up to us. Then she was right by us and asked if we were giving a surfing lesson (hilarious!)we laughed and I asked her if she surfs.

    Her: No. I just finished spending a long time in a wheelchair and am getting back into the water.
    Me:Were you in an accident?
    Her: No, I have health issues.
    me: Oh, do you have MS?
    Her: Yes.

    Who is sending me all these MS people, for the love of Mike? So of course I told her to get on my board and we could pull her around in the water. She said she was scared of the fish. To which we said, "There are no fish out today. You want to be scared of the wave, not the fish".

    She got on the board, but started to have some type of trouble and had enough of it. ...I will kill one of these MS people yet.... :). She is awfully brave to drive around alone, and then go onto the beach and Into the water! Def badge of courage.

    I bet we will see her again.

    Maybe you're a role model and are attracting people with MS? Wonder how long she's had MS?

    Your friends are probably saying you are like a magnet for people with MS. Keep up the good work of trying to help others. We are proud of you.

    Sounds as if this person is more terrorized by the fish.

    The fish? I never thought of fish as particularly scary. Maybe I don't understand about fish.

    I think she was worried about sharks perhaps. She moved down from the Midwest, maybe was worried about the exotic creatures in Florida ocean? I dunno. I refrained from telling her I have only been bitten by a shark once in 5 years.

    What happened with the first woman that you met on a Sunday? You and her brother actually got her on a board and she asked if you were there every week. Did she come back?
