I have had MS since 1987 (diagnosed), it's what I have, not who I am. It presents it's own set of challenges, but hey, I'm up for it... today.

Smoke Free for Me as of: 11-2010

I have "borrowed" this from another Sparker that was typed on a thread, Not only is it great advise, I do believe it could become words to live by.
5 D's
Disarm your cravings with the 5 D's.
1. Delay at least 10 minutes before you eat so that your action is conscious, not impulsive.
2. Distract yourself by engaging in an activity that requires concentration.
3. Distance yourself from the food.
4. Determine how important it really is for you to eat the craved food and how much you really want it.
5. Decide what amount is reasonable and appropriate, eat it slowly and enjoy

The wisest woman I know is my mom, even if we don't always see eye to eye. The most frustrating man I know is my DH & I love him more than life itself.

I was diagnosed with MS 26 years ago, it does not define me, it does not change who I am it is simply what I have, the cross I bear. It does limit me at times, but I refuse to allow it to break me!

I live in the Great State of Texas, city of Frisco, northern burb of Dallas.

    How is your week going? I hope you are doing great! We are getting a bit of rain and thumder here in Oklahoma today and I love it. Going swimming this afternoon but this morning I am just enjoying sitting quietly with my knitting listening to the thunder. Just wanted to stop by and say hi:)

    Hi:) I saw your comments on SCENIC ROUTE's blog and I'm trying to connect with other SP folks who believe in juicing. I am on Day 9 of my first juice fast and it is going fantastic.

    I also have an autoimmune disorder. They kept trying to make it be MS but it wasn't so they kind of threw up their hands. Three years later they figured out it was MG (Myasthenia Gravis.) I hope things are going well for you!
