MS Awareness Week 26th Apr-2ndMay 2010

Boo! This is me- ‘tis I! I look pretty much OK at the age of 55, wouldn’t you say? A bit wrinkled maybe, yet I live with a condition called Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (or MS, to Dai public sic.) and have lived with it since the age of 23. I have as sunny a disposition as this photo, so shan’t mention anything horrible ......besides no one wants to read doom and gloom, now do they?

I’m a lover of life and live it as fully as I can. I even took this photo myself because you can do things like that given the right equipment. Oh and the shades? Prescription sunglasses for long-sighteness, that's all.....well Ok, I can barely see out of one eye but hah! I miss naaathink!

MS is the most common disabling neurological disorder affecting young adults and we estimate that 100,000 people in the UK have MS.Please show your support by raising awareness that it is not a death sentence but a life sentence-and after all, Life is for LIVING, ond yfe, Dai? ;0)
