Craig, I really enjoyed reading about your journey to diagnosis and how you have coped is remarkable. I could relate to so very much of your journey that seemed to parallel my journey. It is a great resource of information and I plan on "paying it forward" to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America's lending library at the end of the year along with some other books on MS. This will give MS patients who might not be able to buy the book the opportunity to read it. This is a free service of MSAA whereby they will lend out books and even send you a prepaid bag to return the books to them. I have donated to them in the past as they are a worthy organization who really help people who have MS with practical assistance. I will reread it again and retain all the vital information in my resource folder. The book has a lot of information that other books don't have such as making plans for your future with a disability as well as planning your final arrangements. I'm working on my bucket list as well.
I like your Mickey Mouse cookie jar. I think we have decided to donate ourselves to Emory's Medical University. But....we may change our minds and just be "dust in the wind".
BTW, After taking an early disability retirement from Federal Civil Service having worked for 25 years, I re-invented myself and have a home-based travel agency which I have been operating since 1994. My daughter-in-law is the "Walt Disney World" expert. My last trip to Disney was in 2002 and I had to rent a wheelchair the second day.
Again.... Congratulations on a job well done.
