Most days, I work in the inventory room making sure that our products are stocked, but on busier days, I help out on the floor. One day, I met a woman who has been struggling with sleep. She has MS (Multiple Sclerosis) -- she’s almost always in pain, but it’s much worse in the mornings.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a progressively debilitating and complex chronic condition where immune system abnormalities attack the central nervous system, damaging nerve fibers through the destruction of the myelin sheath, which serves as a nerve protectant.  MS will affect the entire nervous system including the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves, causing chronic pain and nerve dysfunction throughout the entire body.
