I was diagnosed with PPMS about 6 years ago. I was in a state of denial for at least a year. Finally, I escaped denial realizing its not going away. I am thankful that I still have a full-time job as Information Technology Manager. My short-term memory almost does not exist, but long-term is still intact. I have been at this company for 43 years, which has become my only real contribution I can dredge up in my life. Yes, I have been told that I'm a great husband, father, and grandfather ( I just take the compliments as pity kindness).
I do have a problem of being happy with anything involving this evil disease. I am jealous of those who can. A friend, who also suffered with, told me "there are people out there who wish they only had my problems".
Do you ever feel like your feet and ankles are burning on the inside but cold to the touch?
