Rules I Live By & Low Carb Bagels

Throughout our lives, we’ve been given a hefty dose of advice and “words of wisdom” from our friends, family and anyone else who just feels like they should chime in and I have to admit, I’ve been one of those people. I mean, who hasn’t?  Some of the advice is good but some of it…

Let me start with saying this: I am very open about my MS. I understand and respect those who keep their struggle with Multiple Sclerosis to themselves, however, I find that its therapeutic for me to share my story. I am writing about it with the hopes that I can shed some light on this…
