Do you want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I have no answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a close person and I want my life to be full in some way. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I'm fine. But if you see me, throwing trash all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It only takes a whole day. Thank you and let's all know good morning between the challenges. "
