Lentil Bolognese

Lentil Bolognese with Gluten Free Pasta This recipe is an absolute classic! It has been adapted from a lentil ragu recipe I found on the BBC Good Food website so I can’t take any credit for it.

The Future of MS Care

So, I have just completed a questionnaire from the amazing ShiftMS forum. All about the future of MS care.

Regaining what was once lost – A Chronic Illness story

Before Lockdown 1, 2.0 or 3, before I had all this time to think about life, I hadn't realised how much of myself I have lost since being diagnosed with MS. I'm not even sure how it happened.

First day at a new job, going somewhere I am not 100 percent sure where it is, hospital visits, not knowing exactly what to expect, you name it, I will worry about it!

Living in Lockdown

Hi everyone, it has been a while! Sometimes I can't even believe what has happened. A global pandemic, a deadly virus sweeping the globe, and the Prime Minister actually shutting down shops and schools and telling us we cannot leave the house?
