Earlier in November MS Ireland launched the MS and Me Blog for people with MS by people with MS or directly affected. Every Thursday one of the Blog Team will post an article about all sorts of issues from their unique perspective. Here is an extract from my most recent piece.
“When I speak out about life with MS, I want to show what is possible, to encourage other young people with MS to maximise their quality of life. It is your choice; we take hold of what we have and strive for the fullest participation possible in life. When we use our voice to speak the truth, change will come. Ultimately, by disrupting the awfulness of MS we can readjust our expectations and go towards the better option, to a life of happiness.
I know what it is to have to change and develop a vision. I wanted to make a difference in my world, take responsibility for my health and wellness and show others how they too can live happier lives. I’ve been actively involved in the world of MS, getting ‘stuck in’, meeting other people and sharing experiences – from the Dublin with the MS Meetup Group, in other countries as the Young Persons’ Representative on the EMSP or online exchanges on different social media outlets. Being involved with the MS and Me Blog continues my quest to connect, engage and be inspired by others.”
