    Thank you for sharing so openly, LadyB! I know almost every member of our community can relate to your words! And, like many people with MS, you keep fighting.

    Thank you again for sharing your thoughts so eloquently! I sincerely hope this season brings more good days than bad for you. And may you have less rough mornings and more easy (well, at least easier) mornings!

    Best, Erin, Team member.
