Why a blog?

So why write a blog? I’m not medically trained, not particularly skilled in any special way that makes me an authority or an example to be followed. I have however been on my journey with MS for 12 years and have had to learn a lot in that time and quite often I learned the hard way.

There are no hard and fast rules for MS and no ‘one size fits all’ solution or way of coping. I’m not suggesting I have it mastered and that I’m doing it right. I don’t believe in a right or wrong way to live with or without MS (regardless of how much I reprimand myself) I believe in experimentation, try things till you find something that works for you. I’ve tried lots of things, some I liked, some I didn’t. I’m not advocating any specific treatment rather expressing my experiences with those I’ve tried. I believe that some of these treatments would have been more beneficial if I had tried then sooner but I didn’t know about them then.

So, look at this as a list of options to look into, research or try as you see fit. Or alternatively you may disregard as ramblings of a crazy woman with damage to her brain! Either way I find writing therapeutic and if, as I sort through my crazy MS life on screen, I pass on my learnings and discoveries to hopefully help someone then that’ll be the icing on the cake. Oh great… now I want cake!
