JUST A THOUGHT*

My early childhood religious training influenced me in accepting that suffering was 'holy' as my tool for reaching a goal of a good person or eternal happiness. ​More than 50 years later I was fortunate enough to have a therapist tell me that it was okay for me to give myself permission to free myself from… Read More

Opening up about your illness*

How do you open up to others about your illness?  I have had had such a hard time opening up and letting others know... no I am not mad, or sad I'm just in pain and can't sit there and laugh at your jokes today. It almost makes you feel bipolar or unstable because some days I'm excited/ happy but other days… Read More

Pain *

Finding people who get it....*

I've tried to explain but always seem to fall short. It's become obvious that I need to connect with others that have… Read More

Diet and MS*

Hi!  Do any of you know what changes in my diet would help me?  The "professionals" here say there is no diet for MS, just have a low-fat high-fibre diet...with extra vitD of course.  I eat salad and fruit more, and lower-fat snacks.  I find high fibre doesn't help for me like it should because my intestinal… Read More

At 70*

It would seem relevant when looking back over the years that ms would be prominent, but it is not, the most important 'things' in my life over 70 years has been the two significant relationships which have brought joy into my life. Second to them has been studying economics, that has taught me what makes the… Read More
