Disabled? Yes and No

Categories:

Hi. I am Grace Eagle Reed and I am the host for Disability Awareness. My guest and I broadcast on the 4th Monday of the month at 11am. I am 70 years old and have MS (Multiple Sclerosis). I have had MS since age 35 so have been disabled for a long time. I am a survivor in a way as my condition is in remittance for now. All I have to do to activate it is get overworked, stressed, overly anxious, overly weary, etc. Kinds funny really as there is 'incoming' stress all the time. Because I am disabled I am also low income and when my buggy broke down at the tune of $500 that was stress! The point is that I have had to learn how to feed into my disability when appropriate and when to just ignore that which is not that important. In other words I have learned a great deal about detachment with wisdom. And I have learned how to trust in the 'Source', trust in the process and know that not for a second am I left to myself---Faith that keeps me knowing that while my body is disabled---my mind and spirit is not. And for that I am grateful. Hey catch the show. http://www.negotiatingshadows.com
