I once thought there was no pain or very little pain associated with Multiple Sclerosis.  I have to admit that I was wrong.  There is a lot of pain.  I can’t give anyone a specific number of  nights where I lay writhing in pain trying to sleep.  I get up eventually and write a piece […]

Hello dear readers, I’ve been wearing a brace around my neck for the last three months.  Prior to this, I wore a different brace from different doctors.  You see, I have had three major surgeries from January 2018 through January 2019.  It’s been a miserable year.  One of my surgeries was 9 hours long with […]
