I am SO Embarrassed
Just Keep Your Mouth Shut
I've been made a fool of, and I'm pretty angry about it!
I was confident and happy until this. Now, I just want to crawl under a rock and never emerge.
Don't get me wrong. I'm glad I found out. I'm just feeling very humiliated. When somebody tells you at 2:00 PM that your pants are unzipped, you're glad you know, so you can take action. Still, you have to wonder how long they were like that, and how many people saw it. It's like that, but a thousand times worse.
When I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I carefully considered my options and decided to be an idiot. I talked it over with my late wife, pondered, meditated, prayed, and then settled on the stupidest possible course of action, short of bee sting therapy. (Yes, there are people who believe that allowing bees to sting you is an effective treatment for MS. - No, I'm not kidding.)
The actions I attempted to take might not have been foolish for somebody else. In fact, I know people for whom this plan works. It was dumb because it just isn't me.
