The diagnosis is enormous, so give yourself a break

I wrote a book last year about what it's like to live with MS. I interviewed MSers, because people who live with a condition are the people who know what it's like to live with a condition (I know, genius). I asked them about the time around diagnosis, symptoms, jobs and benefits, relationships, and what they do to manage their MS. I feel privileged to have spoken so frankly to them. The book is called: 'MS: the beggar we live with', and is available on Amazon. My MS nurse said that she would change her approach to patients after she read an extract, and apparently a consultant said the same. I'm trying to be blooming everywhere at the moment, and Shift have asked me to do a blog, so please read it! Thank you :)

The book is great. Written in our language not high faulting gobbledegook.
