You’re Stronger than You Know

When I was first diagnosed with MS it was just weeks before Christmas. I remember falling apart – completely. I remember feeling totally sorry for myself.

Overcoming Change: Let go, Let God

  One thing my MS has meant in my life is learning to let go. And I am not a “let it go” girl. I don’t let go easily. When something happens in my life I often toil over it. Just ask my husband . . . telling me to let it go is basically […]
