I was diagnosed with MS in March 2015.
Since then, I’ve undergone 2 bouts of Lemtrada chemotherapy…. and cycled over 45,000 miles on my bike.
It’s been quite a journey.
I think that other MS sufferers would benefit from aspects of my story – especially the newly diagnosed or those considering Lemtrada treatment – and I’ve now finished the book that I’ve been writing about my experiences.
I attach a link to my book, “CyclingWithMS”, which is now available for purchase on the amazon website – both e-book and paperback.
(All profits are going to the “MS Society” – I am making no profits, direct or indirect, from any sales – and I know the site doesn’t allow advertising but I’ve cleared this with the moderators!)
Several readers have encouraged me post on this website – I’d be happy to answer any queries about my experiences with Lemtrada, my book… or other…. either via this site, or on my wordpress blog: https://cyclingwithms.wordpress.com/
I’m not a writer.
I’m not even a cyclist, not a professional one anyway.
But I do have MS.
To try and organise my own thoughts, I started to write a diarised blog entitled “CyclingWithMS”. I found this exercise enormously therapeutic and was hugely buoyed by the messages of support that it elicited.
As my blog grew and grew, it became harder for readers to find a coherent story so, this year, whilst I was laid low by ill health, I spent my bedbound time transforming my various diary extracts into a single book.
The result is that my book is not necessarily in chronological order and has had to be heavily edited from its original form but I feel that it now best-represent the trials, tribulations and joys of a life with MS.
I hope that it provides you with an entertaining read.
