A more structured life with Multiple Sclerosis

This was a very long week. Came off an incredible high of my amazing weekend at the spirit junkie master class.

Wednesday through Thursday saw 24 hours of drama with my daughter and her boyfriend. Luckily, that ended with a three hour dinner with friends, lousy food but great company….
