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 adaptions make it a little more MS friendly. When I first started following the Mediterranean diet, I… Continue reading Lentil Bolognese
So, I have just completed a questionnaire from the amazing ShiftMS forum. All about the future of MS care. Basically the whole questionnaire was asking how I would feel if all the medical MS services I use were to stop being face-to-face and become telephone or online services. To say I was furious was an… Continue reading The Future of MS Care
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. I suppose I have just been focused, understandably, on dealing with the diagnosis, what this disease means… Continue reading Regaining what was once lost – A Chronic Illness story
I am a naturally anxious person. 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! Therefore, I didn't really relate anxiety to MS specifically at first. However, after reading comments and… Continue reading Anxiety and Me
Whenever I am looking for a new recipe, or wondering what fruit and vegetables are ‘In Season’, the first place I always look is in the free magazines that all of the supermarkets do now. What incredible sources of knowledge they are. I have found many amazing recipes in these magazines. Some of them need… Continue reading Apricot, Pear and Orange Flapjacks
So, don't tell anyone but I can now say that I will be 30 next year! NEXT YEAR! Granted, I need to get 29 out of the way first but still, next year?!?!? The thing that makes me laugh the most is that I do not feel anywhere near like a grown up yet. My… Continue reading #30before30
When does it get too late to be saying ‘Happy New Year’? I am, as always, a little late to the party. Oops. My main resolution this year is to blog more. I was finding before Christmas that MS was all I was thinking about. I was reading about people who weren’t doing so well… Continue reading Happy New Year – 2019!
Here is Part 2 of my A to Z of MS. I really hope it has explained what it is like living with MS and made some of you readers out there feel a little less alone. It was lovely to hear some stories about it via Instagram too.
Over on my Instagram account @manchesterspirit I have been doing the #AtoZofMS, posting a letter on each day of July, well, with some exceptions because it is me and I am forgetful! The aim of this was to create a comprehensive guide to MS, from the view point of helping someone who has just been… Continue reading The A to Z of MS – Part 1
I have been thinking for a while about doing one of those challenges you see so often on social media. Something based around posting everyday and MS obviously. I put it into Google and found the A to Z Challenge website: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2017/02/announcing-2017-blogging-from-to-z.html I know it was an April challenge but better late than never!! So I… Continue reading The A to Z of MS
