Thread Name: Davey Graham: what a waste
Subject: RE: Davey Graham: what a waste
I didn't mean to infer that Davey might have MS; only that alcoholism is an actual disease too.

But I DO have MS! And to finally know why I had to secretly wear adult diapers for 10 years, 20 years now, while being misdiagnosed all that time (to the tune of 4 spinal surgeries for the same damn symptoms), well, I must tell you, it was positively LIBERATING to finally KNOW what the hell was wrong with me. The symptom of blindness could reverse itself. MS is a strange x^z%&*#@%/"$$ disease---with an accent on the $$ signs to highlight the fear of losing income/gigs if you quit playing. That anxiety is enough to make one drink to excess--and to think about looking for ways out.---I hope sincerely the neuro-blindness does reverse. It often can do that.
