Today's Words of Wisdom

Like Schopenhauer said more than 100 years ago,
"The TRUTH always goes through 3 stages....
First, it is ridiculed...
Second, it is Vehemently opposed...
Finally, it is accepted as being self evident...."
 
Thanks to Tom H for this quote.
 
We've been through ridicule and vehemently opposed.  And now we are well on our way to "self evident".
 
Personally, it was always self-evident to me that if I was happy and healthy the first week of February 1987, had a severe virus the second week of February, and never again felt like myself, that the virus was the cause of the problems.
 
Not, as the first doctor insinuated, the marriage that took place six months after I started to have symptoms, and definitely not the divorce that occurred a decade later.
 
But what do I know?  I'm not a doctor, and even though they weren't there, the doctors claimed to know better than I did when the symptoms started and why.
