Comparing being an MS Patient to being a Parent

I came to a realization this morning that publicly having Multiple Sclerosis is a heck of a lot like being a parent & raising children.

As a parent you receive TONS of unsolicited advice on what to do / how to treat something, etc. - all that is given with the best of intentions from the sender - but can be totally unwanted by the recipient!

Like I said, I came to that realization today when I was doling out some 'parenting' advice to a friend.  Good grief. 

I almost choked on my humble pill.
