For MND Global Awareness Day, I share a recent anecdote which demonstrates the importance of talking and raising awareness.
Today I start my second week in my new job. Six days ago, I had to bite the bullet and tell them about Mum.
The unexpected consequences from a conflict between riluzole (MND medication) and antidepressants.
My first fundraising efforts raised £137.52!
I am supporting the #MyEyesSay campaign for MND Awareness Month
Since the diagnosis, my home life has influenced my work, because it has changed me. My first fundraising effort marks how brilliant my employers have been.
In a week of progress, one event stands out as a symbol of what is to come - Mum's new wheelchair.
Yesterday was my sister's 21st birthday. She's had so much to deal with. We wanted to make this birthday special.
It can be easy to think that being diagnosed with MND means a life of despair. But some good can come from it.
One month on from diagnosis, how are things going?
