A little introduction to me

Well what can I tell you, I work as a Practice Nurse in a GP surgery, a job that I love, well most of the time. I have a wonderful husband who is the best. We also have a gorgeous dog Spike, he is a Sprollie (Springer/Collie cross). After writing all that, I think "wow, how good does my life sound, great job (although pay could be better), lovely hubby, cute dog". But I suppose this is where the big 'BUT' comes in. I (along with many others) have become friends with that little old thing we call MS,I say friends I am slowly learning to live with it like an annoying squatter rather then be best chums. MS shouldn't get in the way of life! Right?....right!!  Well it does interfere (quite a lot at times) with our lives but that won't stop us living life to the full for as long as we can, will it?! (I feel as if I should be asking if I can get an AMEN at this point )


Over the last year I have been threatening to start my own Blog since the big "D Day" (diagnosis day), it's just something I have fancied doing and felt it would be quite therapeutic for me to write things down. It's quite nerve racking  this Blog business, as I'm writing I keep thinking whose going to want to hear about me? But hey I'm jumping in with both feet, ye hah! So while helping me through my own personal therapy I hope that my Blog may help others too or at the very least it may just be a comfort to know they are not alone.


As my Blog progresses (or plods along depending on how I feel) I'll be sharing the ups and downs (more up than down hopefully) of my life with MS. I shall be  report on my upcoming DMD's and how I get on with those (no deep medical stuff just personal experience), as well as any other adventures or mischief that I (hopefully) get up to, (no promises though about how exciting the mischief  parts will be) I will look back over my first year with MS, and as and when good or bad stuff happens with my ongoing relationship with MS, you will be the first to know (after hubby and spike, they will feel left out otherwise)  


So I hope I've grabbed your attention and you will read on.


Enjoy

  2. I totally agree. The illness shouldn't take over your life any more than absolutely necessary. Great attitude.

    It's so important to talk about invisible illnesses. Thank you for telling your story.

  9. Hi Kate, Happy SITS Day! I applaud you for keeping such a positive attitude about MS and sharing your experiences as a way to help you cope with it in your first year of diagnosis. I look forward to reading more about your experience and provide some moral support. I am in a similar situation, although I waited 10 years to start blogging about my experience with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I try to keep my blog focused on the positive as well because frankly, the disease and the pain can be depressing and bring me down. So I blog about RA a little but mostly about the things that make me happy and the mischief my 3 boys bring me. Glad to have found you!

    1. HI there, thanks for stopping by and your lovely comment. As I say I'm a nurse and see patients with RA and it's not nice. Blogs help don't they and you meet so many supportive people around you. Things are good now but when they have been bad I've had great support. Glad you found me, I shall hop over to your blog to check it out now :)
