I have been diagnosed with MS for more than half my life now and walking is getting difficult. Compared to most MS sufferers I am doing well, physically. Unfortunately my memory and concentration are now affected and my self confidence is getting shaky. People are not aware that MS is a form of progressive brain damage. A truly hidden disability. But hey now I use a stick so now I can use my Blue Badge with impunity.
What is MS?MS is an unpredictable and incurable condition that affects people's nervous systems. It can attack suddenly or progress steadily, bringing a range of symptoms which can include sight loss, incontinence, fatigue and mobility problems. No-one with MS can be sure when or how it will affect them next.The MS SocietyHere at the MS Society we understand what life's like with MS. And together we are stronger. We're researching, writing, campaigning and fighting. Running, walking, caring and talking.Support the team Our MS Superstars are hoping to raise in excess of £100,000 for people affected by MS. This could help fund vital research into the causes of MS and possible treatments. It could keep the helpline open, answering the calls of those looking for advice and support. It could fund grants, our online forum, informational materials and much more.Let's stop MS together.
