“Mentally this was a dark time. I realised how my mum must have felt when she was diagnosed. A week before our wedding I was given the formal diagnosis and, even though I knew what was coming, it was still terrifying. I didn’t know if I would be able to nurse again.
I see patients struggle with life-changing challenges and this highlights to me that you must just enjoy your health when you have it and live every moment to the full. My only regrets are that my mother did not have the possibilities of treatment that I have and that she never had the chance to meet my wonderful husband and baby.
We will fight MS as best as we can. We will work together building happy memories in a life filled with love and laughter and just on with things – and maybe have another baby!” What a positive outlook. Joanne is an A & E nurse, and – like her mother before her – got diagnosed with MS. But despite her diagnosis, she is determined to live life to the full.

This week has been rough. Still got a long way to go in regards to recovery, but I'm so thankful for my amazing support network. My family, friends, work colleagues and, of course, one in a billion boyfriend who's looking after the home front whilst I have a few weeks with family. #findacure #MS #mssociety #mssocietyuk #multiplesclerosis

Why are we posting a photo of a dog? Well, it’s actually a painting! When growing up, Steve loved to paint. After being diagnosed with #MS, he picked up his pencils and friends and family soon discovered his talent, and today Steve’s a professional artist drawing portraits of people’s pets. "One day in 2003, I woke up with my shoulder in agony. I asked my then-wife if she could see anything wrong. She said it looked normal. I went to my GP, and he said it was a muscle spasm. I went away thinking ‘this feels like more than a spasm’. Two days later, I lost all feeling in my left arm and hand. I have pain, aches and spasms. I have bladder problems and bowel problems occasionally. I’m careful with what I eat, and I’ve quit caffeine and smoking.

I consider myself lucky – there are people a lot worse off than me. I feel like God gave me this talent, and at first I didn’t use it. I had work, children, and I didn’t have time. Then I got ill and couldn’t work. So it’s like God saying: ‘Now you have to use the talent I gave you’.”

At the age of 73 I set myself the challenge of doing a wing
walk to raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis.
I was very nervous in the build up to the flight, but half way through my 20 minute experience I started to enjoy it.
I was diagnosed with MS 9 years ago at the age of 64. I set myself a target to raise £3,000. The response from people who have supported me has been fantastic and I am now pushing on and hoping to raise over £5,000.
Thank you so much to those who have been so generous with
their support.

Day 3: Loch Ness. No words needed.

Last month, it’s been 16 years since I was diagnosed with MS.
Six weeks before my diagnosis, I had woken up on a Sunday morning with no feeling in my left side. When my GP reviewed my notes and realised I’d been reporting symptoms like this for the past five years, he referred me to a neurologist who ordered an MRI scan. Back then, there was one MRI scanner in the Midlands with an eight month waiting list. I’d never used private health care before and haven’t since, but when my employer offered to pay for the MRI, I agreed and I had the scan within a few days. Two weeks later, I was called back in to be told the results.
When the neurologist told me I had MS, I guess I thought he would have a plan to fix it. But that didn’t happen. He explained that we would meet annually, and that I was to contact my GP in between if my symptoms returned. But that was it.
Soon after my diagnosis, the first DMTs for MS were released. Initially, they weren’t available on the NHS. Over the next few years, the MS Society successfully campaigned for a risk sharing scheme to convince the NHS to prescribe DMTs. And it funded the specialist nurses needed to support the people taking them.
I’d like to think it means people diagnosed in 2017 can start their MS journeys feeling informed, supported, empowered and hopeful.

Danielle was diagnosed with relapsing MS in 2001. She's a crossword ninja and apprentice yogi who is devoted to her dog Frank.

For most of us, a resolution made at 2am on New Year’s Day is often quickly forgotten in the morning but not for Noel Wilson. In the early hours of 2016, the former motor sport instructor decided to do something that no one had done before: set an official lap time at every racetrack in the UK – on a mobility scooter.

Noel, 58, was diagnosed with MS in 2013. Looking back, he thinks his symptoms started in 1992, when he experienced pins and needles and temporarily lost the sight in his left eye.
Years later, the pins and needles returned and became more intense. Noel eventually convinced his GP to send him for an MRI. The scan showed MS lesions, but there was something else too. Noel can now walk short distances using crutches, but mostly gets around using a wheelchair or scooter.
Noel set his first official lap time at Silverstone – home of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix since 1987. He took to the track during an event organised by the Classic Sports Car Club. ‘At first Silverstone said it could be a problem because I wanted to go on the circuit during the marshals’ break. I said: “I can only go 8mph, I don’t think I’ll need the marshals!”’ Since then, Noel has set official times at 14 circuits. What a great achievement and you can find out more about Noel’s Motor Sport for MS challenge on our website.
