I AM KNOWN AS "ME" AND LIKED TO BE ADDRESSED AS "ME", I AM A DISABLED PERSON AND YES I STILL LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE POSTED ON "MY PAGE" AND I LIKE "ME" A WHOLE LOT. I DO HAVE MORE DISABLITIES THAN ONE BODY SHOULD HAVE, NONE OF WHICH COULD BE SEEN IN A PHOTO AND I AM GLAD. BUT AS THE DAYS GO BY I MUST GET TO KNOW A NEW ME AND TAKE ANOTHER STEP AND LEARN HOW TO TAKE IT AND LIVE WITH IT AND I HAVE NO CHOICE OR SAY WHEN IT COMES TO MY SICKNESSES. ONE OF MY SICKNESSES, WHICH I WAS DIAGNOSED SOME YEARS AGO, AFTER A STROKE, AND I SHARE THIS HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE WITH MANY PEOPLE AND A PERSON WE ALL KNOW OF, ON THE MEDIA, IS "MONTEL WILLIAMS". YES I HAVE "MULITIPLE SCLEROSIS". MY WALKING IS NOT ANYTHING LIKE IT USE TO BE, I USE TO LOVE TO DANCE AND I WAS VERY, VERY GOOD AT IT BUT NOW MANY OF MY MUSCLES IN MY BODY CHOSE TO TAKE OVER "ME" AND NOW MY MUSCLES HAVE TAKEN CONTROL OF ME. I USE TO SING OH I WAS SO GREAT AT IT, I COULD HAVE BEEN THE NEXT AMERICAN IDOL....... LOL......REALLY, I'M SERIOUS. THE M.S. ONE DAY COULD TAKE OVER MY MIND AND I WONDER, "GOD HOW WILL PEOPLE TREAT ME WHEN THAT TIME COMES?", BUT UNTIL THEN, I PRAY NOW AND PRAY THAT IF THAT IS ALL I CAN DO STILL REMEMBER HOW TO PRAY. I WILL KEEP USING MY MIND AS BRAVE AND PRODUCTIVE AS I CAN, WITH GODS HELP AND I BELIEVE HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN BY MY SIDE. I WILL TRY TO LIVE LIFE TO ITS' FULLEST, MENTALLY AND VERBALLY AND EVEN THOUGH IT IS VERY, VERY HARD, AT TIMES IF I CAN, PHYSICALLY. I HAVE MANY, MANY FRIENDS THAT I LOVE AND THEY LOVE ME, DEARLY. MY FAMILY IS GREAT BUT AT TIMES THEY DO HAVE THEIR MISHAPS AND ONE OF THEM IS WHEN IT COMES TO TRYING TO TAKE ME OR LIFE FOR GRANTED BUT I'M RIGHT THERE TO BRING THEM BACK TO REALITY, AND SAY "HELLOOOOOOOO, I AM STILL IN MY RIGHT MIND, PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK".... LOL. I THANK GOD FOR GIVING "ME" THE CHANCE TO STAY ON THIS EARTH LONGER THAN WHAT DOCTORS EXPECTED, BUT MY NUMBER HAS NOT COME UP YET AND ANYWAY I'M NOT READY TO GO YET. I STILL HAVE MANY THINGS IN MY LIFE TO ACCOMPLISH. I WELCOME YOU TO MY PAGE. I AM BLESSED, MUCH LOVE TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND I WELCOME ALL THE NEW FRIENDS THAT WILL COME INTO MY LIFE. "GOD BLESS YOU ALL", PEACE........."ME"
"THERE COMES A POINT IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU REALIZE WHO MATTERS, WHO NEVER DID, WHO WON'T ANYMORE AND WHO WILL. SO, DON'T WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE FROM YOUR PAST, THERE'S A REASON WHY THEY DIDN'T MAKE IT TO YOUR FUTURE."

WEST SIDE STORY
IMITATION OF LIFE
WRITING, PC,TV, MUSIC
AND LIVING LIFE THE
BEST I COULD...
Don't assume that because I look well that I feel well. Looks can be very deceiving. Many days I look great but feel terrible.
Don't say "I know how you feel." No one knows how anyone else feels. We all have varying thresholds of pain, and pain cannot be measured.
Don't tell me about your aunt and her MS and how she managed in spite of it. I am doing the best I can.
Don't tell me "it could be worse" I don't need to be reminded.
Don't decide what I am capable of doing. Allow me to make those decisions. There may be times I'm wrong, but I'll know soon enough.
Don't be upset that you cannot ease my problems. It won't do any good for both of us to be miserable.
Don't ask how I am feeling unless you really want to know. You may hear allot more than you are prepared to listen to.
Don't assume that because I did a certain thing yesterday that I can do it today.
Don't tell me about the latest fad cure if there is something legitimate my doctor will let me know.
Do realize I am angry and frustrated with the disease, not with you.
Do let me know you are available to help me when I ask.
Do offer me lots of encouragement.
Do understand why I cancel plans at the last minute, I never know from one day to the next how I will feel.
Do continue to invite me to activities. Just because I am not able to bike ride along with the gang does not mean I can't meet you for the picnic at the end of the trail. Please let me decide.
TODAY IS GONE TOMORROW, by Miriam Suarez Perez Alers, is a collection of poems, short stories, family remembrances, and a novella will move you with its emotional power, the reflections on a life lived in pain and joy and its message of growth, hope, and triumph.
This is another emotional and realistic poem from of my book
the name of the poem is:
"At Least Until"
He is the one my life begins with.
He is the one who charmed, comforted,
wanted, needed and made me believe.
He is the one who took my virginity,
gave me a child, security and material support.
He is the one who struck, hurt, lied,
made me cry and deceived me.
He is the one who taught me hate.
He is the one who made me hide all the pain
and scars that would be hard to heal.
He was the one who made me ask, “Why?”
He was the one who taught me what it was to be kissed!
He was another that taught me what it was to be touched!
He was another that taught me what it was to be wanted!
He was the one who taught me to need and to be needed!
They were the ones who all respected me,
but none ever to believe.
He is the one I fell in love with.
His were the eyes my eyes met with at first sight.
His was the hand my hand fit perfectly in when they met.
His “Very nice to meet you” was like a poem
to my, “It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
He was the one I loved,
but I was afraid to face the pain once again.
He is the one who made me feel at ease, with all I did.
He is the one who made me laugh
and cry the joys of happiness.
He was the one who gave me hope.
He was the one who admired me.
He was another that honored me.
He was another that cherished me
and he was the one of many more.
And he was another that almost ruined me.
Yes, he was the one who saw all of the above in me.
He was the one I would never die for;
just could not bear the thought
of never seeing him again.
He was the one who taught me I can love
the way it was meant to be.
And he was the one I thank for my life today.
He was the first I was ever faithful to.
He was the only one I didn’t care to act for.
He was the only one I wanted to be right with,
knowing it was wrong.
And he was the one, when I went to make it right,
it just came out all wrong.
He was the reason for all my bitterness!
He was the reason for all the anger inside of me!
They were the reason, to get even with all.
They made me smile.
They made me happy for a while.
They made me very strong.
And they all taught me that the worst pain
was the pain that I allowed to invade my life.
Now he is the one who accepts
all that I am, all that I was, and all that I will be,
at least until.
The pain and scars don’t hurt as much now;
They are, to some extent, healed.
He is the one I truly will love until I die,
and allow to love me.
He is the one that loves me,
unconditionally, above all…
Well, at least until.
