I dont think its right that those who are not RR should try to make us that are feel guilty about it. We cant control this disease, or who gets it or the severity of it. And we certainly DO know what MS is like. Im not the one in charge of the science behind the dmd's.
I personally would love to know that there are dmd's for spms, ppms, etc. Now, Im not saying all those who are not rrms feel this way. But out of the last 2 support groups Ive been to, this was the general thinking.
We are all in the same boat. Some have been in the boat longer and have been exposed to the "elements" more. I personally would never want to "attack" a fellow MSer. Why turn on each other?
Unfortunately, it is seeping into every corner of our society; people seem to think that if one group gets more attention, then THEIR group gets less. It's not the case, most times, the ones with the most attention, get the ball rolling further & faster. That can be viewed as good for all.
Sometimes it's just about the attention...and THOSE people are never happy. Even when they get the attention.
KittyLady, just let it roll off your back. You can't make some people happy. And nobody is happy about MS (unless you consider the bean counters at hospitals & drug companies).
