Default Taking a step back from ActiveMSers

Misfits, a quick heads up. I'll be posting less here on the forum (and on social media) as I am taking a (small) step back from ActiveMSers and the multiple sclerosis space. Here's why: https://conta.cc/2QvpNiO

Dave, Smart decision on your part,I say. I, for one, know that you will still be there, maybe turning yourself into a Semi-Lurker!

I have learned so much about managing this GD disease thru this site, and one of the major lessons for me has been to manage stress, including giving myself a break from Everything MS at times. I really related to your comment of how good it felt on the cruise NOT researching, NOT focusing on MS related topics.

Keep doing that Dave..... you deserve it. You have built one Hell of a base.

Makes me think of the flight attendant's instructions...If the oxygen masks drop, put yours on first before helping anyone else.

And you KNOW if you are too quiet, this crew will call you out to report....

Please ask Laura to give you a BIG smooch from me!

Dave, Thank you thousands time for starting the Activemser and work so hard for it!
I just donít know how you can do it! I was not sure that you were human! Just to answer this post will take me 1/2 hours or +. So you really deserved to retire some and write only as you feel, specially that book that I am sure will be great.
Yes, MS sucks big time but the only way forward is to adjust and keep going without looking back. Please donít stress, we love you man.!
Cíest la vie! Alain

More power to you Dave! I suspect ActiveMSers has accomplished more than anyone realizes both in terms of giving PWMS a platform to learn and communicate about the disease on and very likely in terms of furthering the scientific research of the disease. A hell of an accomplishment!

I marvel at your ability to do as much as you do, I myself would have stepped back a bit a long time ago - oh, wait a minute, I did step back a bit a while ago, and I found that in stepping back I picked up just a smidgen of the life I left behind before MS. Do you think that might have had something to do with with the fierce independence and resolve the folks on this site constantly exhibit? Yes, obviously.

At any rate, you're still here and so am I and I know we'll both continue to carry on at our own pace.

Thank you Dave,

Larry

BTW, where the hell is the travel log on the Portugal trip!

Dave, this disease is not fun, none are. Active MSers gave me hope when I went from Fat Paul to Fit Paul over six years ago. I now maintain a perfect BMI and am in pretty good shape and this website is partly responsible. I guess that I have you and Carlos Garcia to thank. We all have the right and responsibility to take care of ourselves, you are no exception. Thank you sincerely.
