Ann Romney cant find her words some days.
PLEASE know this isnt political. I dont care if she is D or R or L or from the moon. it was inspiring to see some of the behind the scenes stuff from a woman on the road with MS.
It shows her come out and introduce her hubby, and then instead of sitting behind him and hanging around for 3 hours, she goes back to the bus and lays down. Pampers herself, or naps. During Super Tuesday she said she was exhausted, and didnt tell anyone (typical of an MS person) and pushed past what she should have pushed past, and then...she started to have trouble finding her words. Stumbling, and had brain fog and had doubts about whether or not she was in serious trouble. The team scheduled in more rest for her, and allowed her to recharge, but she said it scared her so.
They also showed Mrs O's father. She claimed that he was dx when he was 30 and never complained about his disease a day in his life. Not once did he ever let on that he was tired, or in pain, or in need of help. I found that fascinating that a man in his 30s never let out a peep about how hard it was.
Are we all like this? dont tell folks when we are tired? dont complain when we know we need to lay down? Wouldnt say a word if we thought it would upset or burden our children? Push past our limits for a spouse who needs you to show up? I saw the same story with Terry Gar. She said she knew she was exhausted, yet she dragged out of bed each day and pushed past the pain. The experts were telling how that is the wrong thing for an MS patient to do, and there can be consequences for such things, but sometimes I guess we are willing to pay the price for our loved ones.
anyone else see it?
