I know a man with a wife and two wonderful little girls. He was
riding his bike to work, in the bike lane, and some distracted
driver turned into the lane and threw him 30 feet. He was in a coma
for weeks, but thankfully came out of it, and a couple years later
has only a very slight limp.
Several people responded (with some admonishing) that I should tell
BEFORE going on a coffee date that I have had MS for 21 years.
However, I don't define myself by a disease. I own my house, have
money in the bank, a future pension, run my own growing art
business, still snowboard, sail, volunteer, am an artist, etc. Yet,
I've messaged with people here who have very little to offer, some
of whom feel it's a waste of time to have coffee with me. One
man called it off at the last minute, saying he "just couldn't deal
Who's to say what will happen to any of us in our future? If, by
including this, I get fewer results, that's okay. At least I won't
be wasting my time or...yours?
So, yeah, been a few setbacks long the way, but I'm finally ready
to make a home with someone who has similar goals and interests.
Shared solitude, yoga, meditatation, living a stress-free,
invigorating life. Haven't we earned it?
