Hi! I’m based in Leeds but unfortunately won’t be able to attend this meet up 🙁 I would definitely be interested in future ones though. I seem to be missing all MS related events at the moment! Booo. x

@finn15 Good timing you posting that today as my first time on here since we met at the last meetup. I was about to say I’m more than happy with the 12th, as I’m in Leeds for something that night anyway. I’ll make the 26 Oct unless I finally sort out getting to Whitby for the goth weekend.

Hi Everyone,

Just thought I’d post venue for Leeds Meet Up on 26th October
Thinking Hotel Chocolat on Boar Lane, just outside the back entrance of Trinity
This venue is close to station for anybody who is coming via train
Let me know if you think it’s okay or if anybody has any concerns about access

I so wanted to come, but now I am looking after my kids so I cannot go I’m afraid.
So sorry, up for the next one, sooner the better for me.

It would have been so good talking to someone else with MS, not that I’m bad at all, more about attitude and actually to talk to someone who can relate and understand what you are on about!

I cant go as the following week I am moving out of home into my own apartment as my marriage has broken down…….we’ve just grown apart that’s all and its for the best. So 2019, been a great year, MS diagnosis and now separation and divorce…. With the latter it’s fine and I’m okay with everything too. Like i keep saying…….what doesnt kill you only makes you stronger!
Probably said too much already..

@cooper you can never say too much, it’s a safe place on here and I’m the queen of over sharing!! Sorry to hear you’ve been having a shit year. Definitely sounds like you could do with that meet up. Hopefully we can arrange another meet in November as I know there are a few people on this thread that cant make 26th October.
Good luck with the move. Onwards and upwards! You can do this 🙂

@curlyclare thankyou. When you hear about everyone else’s problems your own pales into insignificance.
For instance I was talking to a lady at leeds bradford airport the other week. She remains in my thoughts due to her strength, amazing lady…..
She was in her 70s and suffering from pancreatic cancer. Her husband died 2 years ago and her son only 2 weeks prior. Poor lady. I said to her how do you manage with all of this, her reply was simply, I’m not going to curl up into a ball and give up. You must always carry on, for you and everyone around you.
Amazing lady
We all have people who just amaze you and she was inspiring. There always someone having a worse time than yourself, @curlyclare you even used one of my common phrases, and you are absolutely right, onwards and upwards!!

@finn15 , thanks for organising again, I can make it @cooper sorry you’ve had a double blow this year that’s a lot to take on! the last meeting was our first one in Leeds and I certainly found it useful to talk to others newly and not so newly diagnosed. Hopefully we can arrange another date soon for those who could not make it….. @supermum1983 will miss you at the meet up but have a great trip 😄


cooper

Thanks @sarah21, life can deal you shit sometimes and it’s how you get your head around it that counts.
I will definately make the next one in Leeds. I hope everyone has a great time, sorry again I’m not going to make it.
