My Story

So, I don't think it is a widely known fact about me but nearly 10 years ago I was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis). I was in my first year at university, aged 19, and it was a pretty grim time. Over the years I have been through many highs and lows and I'm still learning to deal with anything the disease throws at me. I always know things could be a lot worse and I am lucky.

My biggest struggle over the past few years has been fatigue. And no, this does not just mean I'm tired. It is like a fog overcomes your brain and your body fills with lead. It is pretty constant and makes even the smallest tasks pretty difficult.

Despite this and everything else I will not let this disease define me and I'm determined not to let it get the better of me. As a result, this June I will be abseiling off the Forth Rail bridge to raise money for MS Society. Yes, I am terrified! But there are lots of tasty places to eat in South Queensferry so that is motivation enough to get back down to the ground :)

Thank you in advance for visiting my page and if you could donate anything, no matter how small, that would be much appreciated!

Thank You
