MS Hatred

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".
