MISERY LOVES COMPANY?

Misery loves company? Multiple Sclerosis, like so many other debilitating diseases that plunder your life with no end in sight, is a disease that wreaks havoc on your life.  My life with MS has taken control for the past several months to a point that I’ve been unable to do much, including writing.

Sleepyhead

I’m so sleepy all the time.  I can remember being this way with my first pregnancy.  I could drop off to sleep no matter where I was at or what I was doing.  I’m the same way now. It’s embarrassing how sleepy I can be.  I fall asleep in the middle of my sentences or […]

On Again, Off Again

May you find peace, love, strength, laughter, kindness, understanding and all other positive things one could wish for in the new year.
