(Multiple Sclerosis Cure) Change Your Thinking? (Multiple Sclerosis Cure)

Sweet Day.

Today was a pleasant day with hardly any spasms! Yea! As for my weightloss, I treated myself to DQ small ice-cream.  Once a month is ok to treat yourself, I believe.  Many people trying to lose weight end up messing up because they don't allow one treat to themselves so they don't feel so deprived.  Also, when you're ill 24/7, you deserve to treat yourself.  Another thought accurred to me today.  I think people who are like myself, should consider a pet.  They are wonderful stress relievers especially when depression begins to creep in.  I understand the great responsibility in having a pet companion, so only consider it if you have family and/or friends to help you.  Having a dog definately will get you out of your house or apartment and work your limbs!  More to come later...for now, keep on keeping on!

My Introduction

Hello Everyone,

Being overweight all my life is hard to deal with but believe it or not, I overcame the jokes or cruel remarks from classmates, so called friends or passing strangers because I never backed down from any one plus I was very witty at comebacks.  I was no one's fool, I didn't let me being fat stop me from having respect for myself and from others.  I believe you get treated the way you show everyone how to treat you.  Anyone living with MS or Obesity or both, knows the everyday battles we deal with on a daily basis.  We get looks and rude stares when in public or especially if you are in a restaurant or you're passing through a crowded plaza.  We seem to have fallen off the social scene, geez, a very popular TV network would not play a "Lane Bryant" commercial claiming the lady was too revealing yet they play "Victoria Secrets" too sexy and revealing commercials all the time.  Uh, what's wrong with that picture?  But we must fight to keep moving foward in this cruel society where everyone has to be a certain way to be accepted.  Don't believe the HYPE.  You should be you and living proud for it!  More to come later.  Peace and Love.
