community

I recently participated in a study exploring the experiences of people in the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender (GLBT) community living with MS. It was really great to be interviewed for this research, because it was the first time I had been asked about my experiences as a gay man living...

I thought I'd try something a little bit different for my latest blog, and post a Q&A session with an Australian musician, Marie Wilson, who is collaborating with the MS Community to create a 'Song4MS', and raise funds for MS Research Australia...

how

Have you ever met someone and thought, I don’t know how they do it? Their story of what they have achieved with their life, or what they manage to fit within their day astounds you. How do they manage to get all that done and still remain so positive and focused? Or possibly its been...

Christmas

Christmas can be a crazy time of year, even for those who don't live with a illness like Multiple Sclerosis. After many attempts to write this blog post, I leave you with this.

Thank you

It’s that time of year that many of us send out Christmas epistles, updating friends and family on the events and adventures of the prior 12 months (plus allowing every parent an opportunity to showcase cute photos of our adorable offspring).

Giraffe heads above the tree line

One of the reasons I applied to be one of the “Uninterrupted” blogging team was that it was explicitly stated in the call for participants that we could choose to be anonymous.  I love to write and have been thinking about sharing my experience of living with MS for quite some time – but the...

R U Ok

R U Ok day is a national campaign in Australia bringing awareness to suicide prevention. R U Ok encourages people to check in and ask the question, start a conversation. A conversation which just might change someone’s mind about taking their lives.

Magnolia blossom

I’m lucky to have a small garden where I live.  For years I mainly filled it with easy to grow flowering things like daisies, geraniums and lavender  - the sort of plants you can admire in someone else’s garden and then take a cutting and get them started in your own.  As I got a bit more...
