Christmas for my family is all about sharing experiences and creating memories.
Chris has been working at the same company for over 20 years. We spoke to him about honesty, supportive employers and MS in the workplace.
What do you do?
I’m a boat builder. I make canoes and kayaks.
When were you diagnosed with MS?
I was diagnosed five years ago.
When did you tell your employer?
Figuring out the best treatment option for you can be tricky, but Liz found her MS nurse made all the difference.

When did you first meet?
I met Emma on a visit to the MS Therapy Centre. I felt I needed some more help and guidance following a clinic appointment.
How did you feel leading up to the first appointment?
It can take a long time to become comfortable with a diagnosis like MS. I’m not totally sure I’m all the way there yet. But since I found out I had it in 2013, I’ve been coming to terms with what MS means for my life.
Hello UK, my name is Mette, I have MS and I live in the middle of Denmark in a small town. I'm 41 years old, married to my soulmate, who's British, and together we have two lovely, funny, naughty, cute, strong children - Grace Lily, 11 and Jesse, 9.
I’m writing this post for National Poetry Day. It’s a day when people all over the country will be reading, writing, watching or listening to poems. I love the fact we have a National Poetry Day because writing poems and performing them is one of my favourite things to do.
I always enjoyed going to the gym and keeping fit. Going to classes with friends at the weekend and after work was a regular and fun part of my life. Then I developed MS and the symptoms affected my walking, coordination and balance.
