An enlightening experience
A wonderfully transparent and honest soliloquy about Edie’s experiences with MS. I learned more about the challenges and realities of this affliction during this 45 minute podcast than I learned in my prior 48 years. Happily recommend giving this a listen.

Terrific podcast for MS people
Worth your time!
