Hi guys!

Today for the firts time in my life I could feel what life is like when you don't feel exposed.
For some minutes I felt in total control. Not the old control, which isn't any control. Just relaxed and sort of feeling good about ME.

This happened in the morning, but also on my way home from work. I have never felt that way and it is scary cause I don't see the world through my filters then. It was like I really saw people for what they are and they saw me.

Coming home I felt I could just be me with my daughter, she noticed the difference and we had a good time. Just needed to share this change, I hope it will come more often in the future.

Take care guys,

Eric

Eric,

That's great, man. I've noticed differences in my kids too, but it's probably because I've become human and they're noticing.

Have fun,

Joe

Eric,

Thanks for sharing. MS has been one of the most powerful forces in my life as well. Just when I thought I was doomed to spend the rest of my life just learning to coexist with the ghosts of my SA, I was lead to this haven and found freedom.
When I hear stories such as yours, I know I am not imagining things.

Keep on truckin'

Ron
