I would like to welcome you to M.S.

I have found recovery, to be a rough road at times...but there are always gifts along the way...

The journey is inward...the answers are here...the possibilities are endless...!!!

Thank you Island!

I am trying to look at all this in as positive a way as possible. Finding my mother little shrine to my abuse was hard. The positive side of it is I now know I am not insane. Another positive is that as weird as my life has been at least it has been an adventure.
