Stories for people affected by MS, by people affected by MS.
MS is different for everyone - we hope this blog reflects this.
When the clocks went back my body became more off balance and my legs got wobbly, I also got tired a lot more quickly.
I noticed it’s the same for some of my friends with MS. Maybe it’s the cold that affects our bodies or maybe the lack of sunshine.
When it dawned on my partner Sarah and I that we would be turning 30 soon, we knew we had to take the trip of a lifetime to celebrate (or commiserate).
We immediately thought of New York.
I was diagnosed with MS eight years ago, but I was 7 when I first got sent to hospital with neurological symptoms. So really, I’ve lived with MS all my life.
The words “Trishna” and “easy life” don’t go hand-in-hand. I’m a challenger. Always have been. I like to see how far I can push myself.
Last month I was busy writing a poem every day for my #IchallengeMS poetry challenge. Some days I wrote two because I had 38 poetry requests.
The fabulous people who have been requesting poems have also donated to the MS Society; so far we’ve raised £580.

I have a curious mind. Always have. Always will. I’m one of those people that will latch on to something interesting and then find out everything there is to know about it.
