We support MSers to acknowledge their MS & get on with life


Woohoo! Here we go again. 

Once upon a time, despite having a chronic, progressive illness, I could fall out of planes. I could *survive* a Tough Mudder. But my world has closed in, as it has for so many others

Wheelchair Rugby is out right now, as is physio and exercise anywhere but right at home. I’ve no idea when that will be back. I get the mental health support I need from friends, from family and from the lovely digital world and people of

But having had a modestly rough, slightly scary Covid ride thanks to my Multiple Sclerosis, I need motivation and fitness to keep going. And to be (slightly less) the absolute slowest when I finally get back to Rugby

I’ve shuffled over 4km in stints of 10 metres, Rugby Wheelchair rolled 25km in my chair. And bicep curled over 100 tonnes (yes really! One bicep still works 9/10, the other still 6/10). Gonna keep pushing on as why not?!

All for a charity and social network for MSers called, which has come into its own more than ever these last months. Talking to people has never been more important and never been more missed. keeps me sane, positive and talking to others who understand Multiple Sclerosis, chronic fatigue, pain and disability.

Pretty much every charity will be suffering right now given no marathons, no parachute jumps, no car boot sales. No nothing. 

I always lived by the mantra, without ever realising it: “A diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis doesn’t mean giving up on your ambitions, just rethinking how to achieve them”.

Here we go.  Please give generously. Or a tiny bit. To or to any other charity close to your heart. Plenty of updates to follow. 😎

And PS, when I’ve finished all this, the Mohican goes. Promise.

And extra PS, if people find enough dosh behind the sofa, I may try to give a small amount to Bournemouth Lions Wheelchair Rugby. Tiny charity helping 20 or more wheelchair users be extraordinary together.
