Imagine if people with MS communicated all their frustrations in haikus…

Fatigue
House needs a tidy.
Not gonna happen. Craving
downtime. Urgently.

Unpredictability
Yesterday all good

Juggling Juveniles and Jobs

Late last year, I posted about so-called occupational hazards, issues that crop up for many MS diagnosees who undertake paid (or unpaid) employment. Thank you to all who responded: it has been very illuminating to read...

Mindfullness

This time last year I was still reeling from the new diagnosis. New Year’s Day came and went without a second thought to resolutions, either lofty or less ambitious. However after the proverbial dust settled, over the course of 2015, I turned my attention inwards and spent some time...

Laughing man in river

Have you noticed how much it helps to smile when you’re trying to do something really tough?  It’s not something I ever really tried to harvest before MS became part of my life.  Let’s be honest – I was almost a decade into living with MS before I finally learned to take advantage of this...

If you read my last post on food, you may well either have adopted a diet that is less varied than that of a Buddhist monk, or be cowering in fear that you are on the road to nutrition perdition. In any case, rest assured, this...

In my last blog I talked about the ‘What ifs’ and it was great to hear positive feedback both here on the Uninterrupted blog, and on twitter as well. I mentioned that I might talk about the things that I do for myself that are in my control...

My MS Victory

It's been a loooooooooong week, so I'm cheating and posting the entry I submitted to the #MyMSVictory competition.

My MS Victory is recognising:

  1. HOW to make it through the day...
  2. WHEN to call it a day...
  3. WHAT doesn't matter...
  4. and WHO does!
  5. ...

Screaming monster face

What’s the thing you’re most scared MS will do to you?

Children ask the most amazing questions!  That one came from a boy of about six who was sitting up the back when I went to the local primary school to tell the children about the MS Readathon.  I had just finished explaining...

I think I can

Have you ever taken a casual comment to heart?  Perhaps you’ve left a once favourite item of clothing hanging in the closet after someone suggested it didn’t flatter you? Maybe you’ve achieved something amazing, spurred on by someone else’s confident “you can do it”?  Words are powerful...
