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
During Lockdown, there have been many companies that have given away free resources to keep the morale of the nation up. Hay House Publishing had their Heal Summit back in October 2019, where doctors and holistic healers came together to share teachings and their theories of how to heal your body through avenues other than… Continue reading Hay House Heal Summit – Anthony Williams talk
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? It sounds like something from a book...War of the Worlds comes to mind.… Continue reading Living in Lockdown
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

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
