Be Free To Lead The Lives We All Want To Live.

Richie told me yesterday that he thought that I was very courageous, how he admired me for refusing to let MS stop me doing things and being involved.

He said that it was wonderful to see how I have refused to be left on the side lines because I can not move my body.

How I have created my own work, by writing a post for my blog everyday, something I love to do.

Since I have lost my mobility my writing has become extremely important for me, I am so glad that the internet is available.

Without the internet and the blog world I would be extremely isolated and would have nowhere to share my experiences, since MS has devasted my life and Richie’s life.

Being able to express myself and to be able to communicate with people around the world is incredibly important and good for me.

The fact that right now people from 139 countries are reading my blog is a wonderful thought, love looking from time to time at the countries on the list.

I marvel at the many countries which are on my list of countries, was very happy to see  Iran, Myanmar, Jordan, Ethiopia, Alland Islands, India, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Cook Islands and Egypt are some of the countries that are all reading my blog.

How wonderful that people from 139 countries read my blog it is truly wonderful, love the idea of communication with all those that read my blog.

Communication is so important for us all; to be in communication with each other and tell our stories is so important.

Feel very strongly that there is a big need for free communication between all people everywhere so we can support each other and be free to lead the lives we all want to live,

I think I love Richie. He is right. You ar such a courageous person & I love you even though we have never "met".
I was thinking along the same wave the other day, about how many people from around the world stumble onto my blog. How or why people in such far away places have found my blog interesting. I wonder what it would be like if everyone commented. When I post a link on Facebook, my number of hits are always tripled (I dont post a link to every post, some I save for my true Blog followers only).
I appreciate the free communication and hope that we will always have that right.
I feel so much closer to the world knowing that people around it are similar to me in more ways than I knew.
I appreciate people that are diverse and see that I can be friends with someone regardless to religion, race, gender or status.
Herrad~Your Blog I look forward to every day. I am addicted and truly care. I keep you close at heart and prayer. I also think that Richie is a bit of a hero and courageous as well. So glad you have each other♥

I have had MS long enough to know what it was like before easy internet connections and blogging. I much prefer this new world.

Hi Herrad,

You are very courageous and an inspiration to many. You certainly inspire me.

I agree that blogging and the net are very important to those of us that spend many hours at home. I know I would be lost without both.

Cheers

The internet was a 'gift' to me when I was going through my cancer treatment. It helped me to keep in touch with like-minded kind hearted friends.Esecially as I felt so isolated at home for a while.
I am so happy to read that you get such fulfillment out of entering your blog every day and keeping in touch with your friends too.
Herrad you are such an inspiration and so is Richie too.

Hope you are feeling much better today.

I know what you mean about the internet letting you express yourself and get to know people.

After my coma, I sat here in my house recovering. The net helped me relearn words and find new things to keep me going.

To this day, I still get lost in my mind but the net always helps me.


I hope you find joy today ...

(I think you are one of the bravest people I have ever met.)

Hi Judy,
You are right and I agree life is better with internet and blogs.
Good to be able to communicate with each other.

Hi Karen,
Thanks for your kind words, I agree with you I think we support and inspire each other.

Hi Jeanie,
Totally agree with you about the internet, for these of us who spend much time at home and in bed the internet is unmissable.
I love writing everyday it helps me to cope and well with my limitations.
Thanks for your kind words about Richie and I.

Hi JC
I can well imagine that the internet helped you regain language and relearn words.
Thanks for your kind words.

Thanks to you four dear friends for coming by, good to see that the internet helps us all.
Brilliant seeing all your lovely comments.
Keep warm and cheerful.
Love,
Herrad
