Please allow me to introduce myself…I think a re-introduction is necessary. On the basic front I’m a 45 year old woman. I have an 18 year old daughter about to go to college. I am a single mom with two dogs that I love immensely. I have multiple sclerosis. I was diagnosed at the age of 26. That is me and for some people that is enough information. However, to me, those are numbers and statistics, doesn’t say anything about ME.
If you follow astrology, my birthday is November 22. I sometimes start Sagittarius and sometimes end Scorpio. When I was younger (before the Internet) I usually ended Scorpio but now it seems I usually start Sagittarius. My running joke was always I’m schizophrenic, since they are both very opposite signs.
The Scorpions are strong, commanding, intense, passionate and zealous and driven, Scorpios are often mysterious people because their true feelings run so deep and they keep their emotions hidden. They also like to uncover things under the surface of others and are very intuitive. Combined with a determination and loyalty.
Sagittarians usually display a cheerful and optimistic disposition. Their inherent curiosity keeps them more interested in what will happen tomorrow rather than focuses on the mistakes of today. Sagittarians are truly free spirits and yet, they are the nicest of all the zodiac signs. Sagittarians are kind, openhearted souls who do not expect anything in return when helping a friend. There are no hidden secrets to a Sagittarius.
So who am I? I am a Sagittarius. I am that kind open hearted soul. I am a giver by nature. I get more joy over giving then receiving. I am an open book, once you get to know me. I have nothing to hide so I have no reason to lie. I try to be honest and usually, if I’m not being completely honest, it is so I don’t hurt someone’s feelings. I am shy, and sometimes it is hard for me to show who I really am. I am funny, love to laugh but prefer to make another laugh. I am loving and loyal. I was asked once in an interview to rate myself on a scale from 1-10. I gave myself an 8. When I was asked why, my answer was simply, because I’m nice.
HOWEVER, I have a side that is vengeful if wronged. I can be extremely passionate about things and competitive. At my job, I had to have the best numbers monthly. I received no money, bonus, I barely received praise. I was in competition with no one but myself but I would accept nothing less then being the best. I am smart and strategic and can be a mean enemy. I can fight dirty. I have a dark side, which has changed as my multiple sclerosis got worse. The goth type partier had to be put away, but the warrior still exists. That’s who fights the MS everyday. That will, that determination, that refusal to fail, all Scorpio. My Raven tattoo represents that side.
I am on the surface am a mom with MS, but underneath I’m many pieces of a whole puzzle. I believe in fate, chance, numerology, angels and signs. I believe life has a reason. I believe I have multiple sclerosis for a reason. I believe I’m ME. Pleased to meet you….
