Fireworks tips when you have dogs

Happy 4th of July to everyone. It’s a beautiful day and everyone is probably thinking about BBQ and fireworks, I’m thinking about my dog, Boomer, who passed away in December.

Emotional freedom technique

This is actually a reblog of mine. I used tapping for weight loss and self esteem issues some time ago. I must admit, I haven’t been doing it at all lately, but I know it’s a great tool. I’ve been having problems sleeping. I’ve been waking up almost every hour. I can’t stress how important sleep is with MS, or any chronic condition for that matter, and I’m not getting enough. In my email today was an article about tapping…
