Before FUMS I was FTW

Kathy, I’ve communicated on other platforms with you in the past, but until I gave myself A chance to enjoy laughing at myself and relating to my fellow MS’ers ... I didn’t know who Pamela was anymore. I became that woman with MS.. in my own mind!!! So thank you for all the time and energy you put into FUMS, because I actually don’t feel guilty about investing in ME anymore. Weeding out the toxic people was not only healthy it was taxing my health! Thank you!!

First Podcast Ever!

I feel like I just made a friend. I have been having a very hard time managing my MS symptoms and keeping up with the demands of my job and feeling pretty worthless because of it! Your kind voice, positive outlook and real deal talk is refreshing! Thank you!
