Stressed Out!

Good grief, I am stressed and it is making me want to scream.

I work in the mortgage industry and things are coming apart at the seams. All this just make my MS go crazy.

Will I have a job tomorrow or not? Will I have insurance tomorrow or not? Can I find another job? If I do will the insurance cover my MS meds? What next??

Any suggestions?? Thanks for letting me vent....

Plastics cause insulin resistance

LC,

Thought this would be of interest to you. If you are drinking bottled water or eating a lot of foods from plastic containers, maybe that is why you can't get your insulin level down.
