Part 1: MS and Genetics
“A Conversation with my Daughter”
We were talking at the dinner table, my daughter and I when she said, “I think I’m going to have MS when I grow up.” Just like you might say, “Pass the salt.” What happened in my brain was akin to the World Trade Center being hit. I looked into her eyes for some hint of joking, there was none. I asked,” Honey, why do you say that?” Her response,”because I’ve had Optic Neuritis” That’s it! There goes the second tower and the fucking Pentagon! Who PUT such trash into my baby’s mouth?! I NEVER taught her those words! Why are they there?
