the chicken or the egg

My recovery from Covid is making me very emotional. To be fair, people have always told me that I am overly sensitive. And I do cry a lot. Not over personal things or big things or real life things, but all of the little things that ultimately have nothing to do with me. That swell […]

MS Myth of the Week: Kiddos.

Myth: People with MS shouldn’t have children. I personally don’t want to have children at this point in my life and I am really, really good with that decision. There were several years in my 30s where I dreamed of kids and felt it was something I needed to experience. Now, in my 40s, single […]

shake, shake go away.

My love of rain is helping my night tremors. Before I even realized my body was shaking and vibrating while I sleep, I began using a rain app at night. I absolutely love the sound of water.
