Hello, new member just saying hello.

Hi guys, my name is Francis, from West Yorkshire. I joined this group/community as my mum has Primary Progressive MS. She was diagnosed in 2005 but had symptoms for about 6 years before the diagnosis. I’m her full time carer.

I’ve been following the Shift MS twitter account for a few weeks now, it’s absolutely brilliant. I’ve learned a lot there, along with my mum. I’m looking forward to interacting with others here, sharing my own experiences as a carer, along with my mum’s experiences. My mum is a bit impatient when it comes to these kind of “internet thingymajigs” so she asked me to join here.

Have a nice day everyone.

Hello @frankyjack, nice to meet you and your mum! How lovely that you’ve joined on her behalf. There are lots on here, including myself, for whom this has been the maiden voyage into social media. This is a great site for sure. There are quite a few on here from up north! There are folks here with PPMS from around the world. Have you used the map function above yet to see if there are any in your area? Have a great day, both x

@vixen Thanks for the suggestion, I just checked it out and pinned our location. There’s a few folk around the local area. What a great feature to have πŸ™‚

I’ve given my mum the password and all that so she can log on using her tablet. She’s not the most patient device user, but she will try.

@stumbler, thanks man, it goes both ways, I’m lucky to have her, she’s pretty cool 😎 no matter what she’s going through, she’s always there for me when I need her.

@doubleo7hud Ey up pal, seems to be many Yorkshire folk on here, which is great, seems we liven the place up with our charming witty remarks and good looks πŸ˜‚ 🀣 πŸ€”πŸ˜’ I’ll give thee a shout sometime pal if need be. Hope you’re enjoying your day.

@grandma Thanks very much, you’re very right, I should have put her name before, her name is Sue and she wishes that 35 is her age 🀣 she’s 58ish, if she sees this and starts shouting at me, it’s all your fault πŸ˜‚ Have a lovely day Grandma.
