A lady who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis once told me that she found out about her disease in a very scary way. She came home very late from work one night and she saw her garage door closed. She put the breaks on so she could park her car in the driveway. Instead she ended up crashing into her garage door. The car stopped because there was a wall in front. By this time her husband and her older kid woke up and ran downstairs. She was puzzled and started telling her side of the story while getting off of the car. She could not get out, her feet seemed like they were frozen and she fell on the garage floor. It was very hard for them to convince their homeowner's insurance and their auto insurance that she was not drunk. They went through several tests and finally she was diagnosed. As sad as she was, it was a relief for her. Today she wears a medical alert pendant and she knows that she will be taken care of in an emergency. We started talking about today's Technology and compared age old telephones and other method of communication to today's cell phones and smart phones. She is just thankful that it is because of technology that she is able to read on internet a lot more about her disease. Also now people like her are using modern kind of wheel chairs because of technology. I told her that if it was not for technology we would not have Twitter and we both laughed.
