4 days ago · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

Blindsided by Richard Cohen changed my life in a profound way, i.e. Shame. He let me claim my new life with a cane at 58 as mine to own. It was shocking how similar the symptoms are between multiple sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy. I will read anything he writes.

I do not either. At the same time it was a "miracle" of sorts to find this group. Yes,the cane,the pain, the depression – all still here. But there are voices with the same with suggestions,maybe a joke or squirrel pic, to lighten the day. Thinking of you.

I will look into him and purchase his book. I try to stay open to any new ideas which may help. This illness is a monster, but we humans are pretty clever at dealing with it. I have learned that from the people on this website. Just wish I didn't dream I am my physical self of ten years ago.

Thank you jimhd. I am learning to embrace solitude. My father loved Thoreau so I am reading his meditations. Your words echo his, I think. I volunteer at a local hospice, just reading and listening. Self pity does not exist there. A butterfly landing on the windowsill is cause for celebration. Makes my losses seem minimal.

One of the many reasons this group is helpful is that sometimes you can’t help but smile!☺ Love your critter photo. I too tinker around with photography. There is something calming about doing a ‘still life’ of something you find in nature. If I can’t hike in the woods anymore, I can surely bring the woods to me. Photography also brings the element of surprise that you encounter in a hike. Nature is good medicine for the soul (I think.)

Acceptance is not giving up. That is illuminating.
