My Past Life when I worked*

I worked since I was fifteen years old. I loved working being independant and having my own money. So how did I get into my position that I am in now? And how can I fix it? I was diagnosised in 2012. I worked about 2 years after that. Then, I thought I was doing the right thing by medically retiring. I was in… Read More

Intense Itch

I don't see many posts about itching.  Besides fatigue, my worst syptom is itching.  It is localized (foot) and debilitating.  My neuro likens it to pain because it is so intense.  When I try to sleep it will begin; I have to get up and walk for a while (which is difficult when so sleepy).   I've seen four docs… Read More

I'm wondering if other people have this problem or if I'm not doing it right.  When I reply to someone's post, I can't see my reply and I wonder if that means I'm also not seeing their reply to my reply.  Anyone know how I can fix this? Read More

We Are Valuable*

I want to share the following story from a Max Lucado book. "It seems a couple of prowlers broke into a department store. They did what they came to do and left undetected. They took no merchandise. Nothing was removed. Instead of stealing, they changed the cost of everything.  $5.00 on a camera.  $395.00 on a… Read More


I was just diagnosed with MS 1 month ago. I’ve had lesions that they’ve brushed off as migraines for years. I’ve had about 4 mris in the last 2 years for other things, and it hasn’t changed until this summer with an active lesion. I also have Endometriosis, and was on Lupron Depot for 3 months. Lupron is a… Read More
