Share your story

We believe no one should have to face MS alone. And real stories about life with MS, from real people like you, can make all the difference.

We're always looking for people who can share their experiences on our community blog and our instagram account. Could you tell us what life with MS is like for you?

You can share whatever you’re comfortable with. What was it like when you were diagnosed with MS? What advice would you give someone who is newly diagnosed? Do you have any tips for dealing with a particular symptom or hacks for life in general? You can tell us about your MS journey, or about a specific event.

Whatever you choose to write about, thank you for sharing it with us. Your story is important.

One of my main problems is walking. I can’t walk unaided and I use a wheelchair or mobility scooter when out and about. I don’t know how my daughter feels about this because she just accepts it. If she is bothered by it, she never tells me. 

Another huge problem is mum guilt. I often have to say no to my daughter because I physically can’t do what she wants. I try not to feel guilty. I just try to feel good about what I still can do. I might not be a ‘normal’ mum who can walk, but I make sure I do what I can to the best of my capabilities. I know she loves me for me.

I was diagnosed in 2011. But I didn’t get treatment straight away because they were waiting for me to have another relapse.

Once I had two relapses I started on an injection once a week. That one was a big needle that went straight through the muscles and I didn’t like the side effects- it gave me flu like symptoms the day after.

When I had my MRI it showed new lesions so I went on some oral tablets (since 2015 Dec) and that’s been going really well. I’ve had no new lesions.
