Grief and Loss in the MS Journey

From MSAA Motivator Winter/Spring 2010
" members and patients experience grief in different ways. ...  They are on the same roller coaster and can't get off. But, one is in the front car and the other is in the middle or back car. Although the ride is the same, the experience is different. They can't understand why the other person isn't reacting like they are. ...."

  1. I just took a quick look at that article, Patrick, but I can see how people would be on different plains of grief relative to MS (or really any other illness/disease or even death). I wrote a blog entry a few weeks ago about grief, how everyone handles it in their own way and time and the difference between empathy and sympathy. I think that is why sometimes support groups (even if they are in the way of blogs) is good for people on journeys like MS; people can find someone they perhaps might be able to relate with to help on their roller coaster ride.
