    Thank you for these. The cleaning one was spot on 😁I am on my couch in tears because I can’t hardly move from utter exhaustion. It is overehelming today. The tears are because I am so sick of all of this. Today is so much harder because with the latest supplement changes I had actually has a couple straight weeks of 50% pre-levels. Then to wake up this morning st the bottom again is devastating. I read your story on your website and it was encouraging, thank you. I was halfway through a Masters in Holistic Health and Wellness when all my symptoms started. I did manage to complete my degree but not the dream of become a wellness coach to busy, overachieving women. You need to be “well” yourself. Maybe someday…
    Thanks again for the smiles.

    These really made me laugh –thank you! I have MS and just got out of the hospital from the worse spell of illness I’ve ever had. Reading these makes me realize i am not alone! You must use humor to get yourself through those hardest days and I post on FB very opening about MS so putting a cute Meme softens the blow a bit for my husband, daughters & my Great Danes who are my biggest life support & i am the luckiest lady in the world. LOVE “taking a shower exhausts you” and “I dont want to adult today”… I am lucky enough that I have a private disability and social security; i worked for a law firm for 25 years before my MS made me go out on disability. My husband works a job that allows him to take care of me and my sister in law lives across the street. My oldest daughter comes by almost every day. For those of you struggling with these diseases that dont have the resources or the support system, I pray for you — i wouldnt be able to endure this pain and the dignity MS strips from me as i get older…..
