For the Mind

Free yourself from suffering. Just because you have ms does not mean you must suffer. Some of the pain you can relieve, allow yourself to be free of suffering. It will help make things easier. Try it you may like it. Remember the Kiss rule, keep it simple stupid. I am very lazy, I find the fastest easiest way… Read More

Since then he got very mild nerve like pain in the same spot over and over. It has come back now but quite severe nerve pain, he is seeing a dr… Read More

I went to a specialist who told me… Read More

Vocal cord dysfunction*

i have been out of breath for at least 2 or 3 months and about 7 weeks ago, my voice started doing ‘weird’ things. It kind of sounded like a preteen boy whose voice cracked and changed a lot. Eventually it got worse and became a whisper. I went to ENT and they diagnosed vocal cord dysfunction and partial vocal… Read More

Distonia question*

Ok so the guy that I'm buying my house from thought that I have epilepsy and I'm not sure. My nephew thinks it's not because it only affects one side of my body but I'm beginning to believe it might be. It's also affected the left side of my face. As well as the left side of my body. Now I spoke to a lady last… Read More
