Burnt the food. Argh!

I think my memory is getting worse. I used to be able to do several things at once. Now I thought I could and burnt the food. Good job I didn’t burn down the house. Life is definitely more frustrating with MS. My hubby suggested writing more notes to myself. I think I would probably forget to write ...

Vaccine Alternatives for Gilenya

Hi everyone, this is my first post here on Shift. It's good to be here! I'm posting because my wife has MS and she takes Gilenya daily as part of her treatment plan.

The Buck List Job - Dang!

The other night I gave a presentation on Alaska as part of my book launch. For years I was a teacher and school administrator in Alaska. My dream, education, and training pointed to the superintendent of schools position. Then MS struck, and I was on medical disability ten years ago. Fast forward to...
