Well done!

I was not panicked or upset, just accepted it and moved on with living, both after M.S. and cancer.

What I try to stress to people is: Do not be defined by your disease or condition!

In everything, moderation!

Drink a cup of green tea, enjoy the health benefits. Slam hundreds or thousands times more, and yes, it makes perfect sense that it can blow up your liver!

I can imagine! Glad it's not latex, and that it's working for you.

The first few weeks living with my colostomy had me constantly worried about leaks, smell etc. Now, I love the thing!

That's a nice scooter, but the narrow wheels would likely only be good on paved surfaces. My Jazzy Jet 3 goes close to that fast, but only because I made some modifications not approved by the...

Thanks for that!
I get so tired of going someplace and then finding that my powered wheelchair has no access to it. This may help!

Nice Article

For what it's worth, I've been eating turmeric near daily most of my life. I eat copious amounts of Indian and Asian food stock full of the stuff.

I still got M.S.

For that matter, I also have...

OK, I'll bite

This is the only M.S. resource I use. Period.

I am not defined by my M.S. or my cancer. They are just something that are part of me.

I come here to both get and offer advice about M.S. because it...
