Articles published in the MS Press
I have had some articles published in Multiple Sclerosis magazines. They are talking about setting up the website, me, how I cope with disability and the disease. It is essential that I retain my independence and make sure that my quality of life continues to be as good as possible.
There are certain things that I must not do or even think about. I am not allowed to drive, my peripheral vision is very poor so my independence has been affected. Secondly I have had to change my expectations, for example I cannot walk very far, obviously this has affected my quality of life but I always try to think of the glass as being half full rather than being half empty
These articles will give you some idea about me and what is important to me over and above my independence and quality of life. I hope you enjoy reading them
