MS symptoms: Beating the Fatigue to Find Peace


My husband and I thought we would go out on the lovely Sunday afternoon and add to our photo collection. Fatigue kept me in the car while my husband took the photos. He picked a spot that required a 15-minute hike through the rain forest. Not wanting to disappoint him I got my gear on and began the hike all the while saying in my head, “This is a mistake. What if I can’t make it back?” Choosing not to pack my camera bag, I stood by encouraging my husband. He gave me his phone to take a photo. Peace in Alaska!
