I am a happy sad

That is how my friend explained it to me yesterday when I told her how I felt. I’m very excited for my daughter, my college years were some of my favorite years.

The day has come My teen is now legal to drive. Since my divorce I’ve basically been a single mom. My ex-husband lives in a state 9 hours away.

I’m sure any mom with or without MS can agree, the carpooling to outside activities, friends house, parties, and every other place you cart your child to and from is exhausting.
