Throwback Thursday; Thinking of the Old Days

Hi everyone!  Hoping that you are all as well as can be and are enjoying these longer days (and the chance to curl up with a hot chocolate!) like I am.  Blogging has been a bit slow due to my relatively recent (August) return to work.  My body is most definitely telling me that I… Continue reading Throwback Thursday; Thinking of the Old Days

This is My MS – Lifestyle

This is my last blog post in the 'This is My MS' series (see here for my post about my physical symptoms and here for my post about my mental health).  I know that I am very nosy eager to hear about how others try to manage their MS and the symptoms they have, so I thought that I would… Continue reading This is My MS – Lifestyle
