    Aww…MS can be awesome! I am so grateful to have MS because I have learned lessons in life. Sometimes, when I have no feeling in my foot, I light a candle and burn sage. I then write in Grateful Journal how lucky I am to have a progressive disease because it has taught me life lessons. I still tend to be somewhat bitter that with some of my struggles in life but I am praying to the Earth Mother that I will be hit by a car or attacked by a rabid coyote. Only then, will I be able to release my bitterness into the universe.
