SUMMARY 

In review, allow acceptance to be there because MS is going to play a role in your life. When you push it away, what you're saying is I'm denying the fact that I live with MS. Don’t do that. It’s not a happy way forward.

It will bring you confidence. It will remind you that you do have control over your life and that your life is moving forward with hope, possibility, excitement and so much more.

SUMMARY 

When you live with MS you can build pathways in your brain that connect you with joy. You can change your life energy. It starts by finding joy and hidden places.

Finding Joy in Hidden Places While Living with MS

Often, when you think of your life with MS, do you equate that with struggle, frustration or discouragement?

These are the kind of words, the emotions that come to mind when people often think of MS in their daily life. The reality is these words then become connected with multiple sclerosis. What we want is we want to connect other words also with MS; like courage, curiosity, tenacity and resilience, the power words.

I remember the last time I was at my sweetie's family cottage, there’s a grassy backyard with beautiful yellow and red flowers popping up. In the wild garden are raspberry...

How I Deal with MS Fatigue in 7 Ways

I'm going to share what I do about MS fatigue and what you can do too with seven ways that I manage fatigue.

Here's why we MSers burn energy faster. This information comes from Dr. Timothy West. It comes down to inflammation with the demyelination in the brain. This is when the MS in the brain attacks the coating on the wires (myelin). It chips or breaks the myelin sheath.

As a result we burn more energy to do the same tasks that people that don't have MS. The fact is that 80% of people living with MS have some sort of fatigue.

Even when we're resting burn more energy, more sugar than those that don't live with MS. Very...
