D= Don’ take your frustrations out on others.

Sometimes we are not aware of the effects of our actions or words. It’s human nature to react without thinking. Living with a chronic illness tends to isolate us from good manners when we are in pain.

It’s no one’s fault we feel discomfort from multiple sclerosis. It is also no one’s fault we have this disease. Multiple sclerosis cannot be “caught” nor is it something we choose to have. It’s a waste of time to place blame for your condition and complaining won’t make it go away.

I’m not telling you to sit back and not take action against the MonSter. Complaining about it, though, solves nothing while making a bad situation worse.

Go ahead. Accuse me of being a “Happy-happy joy-joy” ( kind of person. I don't mind.

If you didn’t do it pre-COVID, don’t do it now. If you find yourself doing it now, STOP.

W can’t stop our disease, but we can work toward a comfortable relationship with this MonStrous companion.

Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages
