Life with MS

In November 2016 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis or MS – this diagnosis came after 10 months of plenty of trips to the hospital for a range of tests. So after a rollercoaster of a year the actual diagnosis was both a shock & a relief.

Now that (I think) I’ve come to terms with having MS I decided to add this page to my blog to write about my experiences, share tips and inform people what life with MS is like for me. There are a lot of great MS blogs out there and I hope to add to the shared experience by focusing on academic life with a chronic illness.

If you have MS or know someone who lives with MS the below links help me manage life with MS:

Shift MS – an online community

MS Trust

Chronically Academic – network for academics with disabilities & chronic conditions
