Being a podcaster can be a lonely life. So what better way to begin the holiday celebrations than getting some of your favorite MSers together to talk about our plans for the season?

Alongside my guests, we talk about some of the things that can play on our minds during this time of year, particularly when combined with having a chronic illness like MS.

Dan & Jennifer Digmann talk about how to handle the stresses of maintaining relationships. Ardra Shephard is here to talk about staying fashionable and feeling good about yourself. Then Kathy Chester covers the different ways that you can maintain your fitness and movement schedule, while Alene Brennan talks about the essential stuff - food choices and cooking!

Finally, we all share some of our favorite holiday recipes - link provided below.


Topics covered in this episode include:

  • Tools for handling challenging relationships at this time of year
  • How to look our best when we're tired, cog-foggy, and stressed? And why should we care?
  • How to find the time and motivation to keep moving and exercising
