I was just reading through some posts and found them to be pretty sad. People are angry and some are thinking of leaving. I am new here, so I don't know how it used to be, but I am pretty clear on what it is designed to be. Aplace where people with MS or caring for someone with MS can come, ask questions, give advice, feel supported. It looks a little clickish to me, like people have made some friends here and are ganging up on other people. I was looking through all this when a great idea came to me (well, i think it is anyway... but it's my idea, so... i may be a little biased... lol) BUT what if we all just decided and sgreed to not even enter a thread where the title or it's author looks as if it may offend us, if that is not safeguard enough, can we agree that if we read something we don't like to just move on and realize that nothing anyone says here has the power to affect us UNLESS we DECIDE to LET it. I guess I just look at it this way... No one on this board is paying my bills, buying my clothes, cleaning my house, cooking for me, deciding my religious beliefs, choosing my method of treatment, watching my kids, or choosing which sexual positions I engage in! Why or how could anything they say have any kind of impact on my life unless I let it? If we all just agree to use this site as something that brings us joy and decide right now that no one has the power to make this place unenjoyable for me we will all be better off. Anyone here who wants to disagree with what I've said, feel free... Express yourself... Just as a side note, I will never look at this thread again because I will not subject myself to any drama that could possibly come out of this!! :)

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
