Past EmotionsTurn off my mindPast Emotions by arthaus
And turn on my soul
Away from my thoughts
And into my eyes
Forget this one moment
And we'll last to the end
We'll do it together
From beginning to end
I'm confused about emotions
This happens a lot
I feel so good with you
Beyond anything I've sought

And move on beside me
All I need is your hand
I don't take this situation lightly
Don't think I'm a prick
I'm insecure with emotions
And they're making me sick.

Until I met Nadia almost a year ago, I'd never had anything to do with anyone diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Each time we spoke, something else would have changed... loss of vision, paralysis, intense pain... effectively a daily lottery of varied and debilitating symptoms.
The National MS Society outlines far more succinctly how the disease operates than I can:
MS is thought to be an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. Surrounding and protecting the nerve fibers of the CNS is a fatty tissue called myelin, which helps nerve fibers conduct electrical impulses.
In MS, myelin is lost in multiple areas, leaving scar tissue called sclerosis. These damaged areas are also known as pla

Generally speaking, my writing is inspired by my personal experiences or experiences of others by observation. Writing began as something cathartic for me to deal with unpleasant experiences-- like my mother's plight with cancer. Right now, my writing has become a way for me to express observations about human nature, or the world around us and how people interact with it. Well, I try to express that anyway.
For instance, I moved out of town my last year of high school and took a public bus there and back again everyday. I don't think I stopped writing for weeks. I experienced something which still fascinates me to this day, something that intrigues me enough that I love taking buses or trains just to watch and listen to people. Some of the most interesting things I've written about have happened when I took the time to stand back and watch the world go by.
