Let's end this MS malarkey
Hey there, if you're reading this you probably know me! Yes, I have MS. Yeah.. sometimes it kinda sucks, but I'm still doing far better than a lot of my fellow MSers. While I spend some of my free time helping newly diagnosed people online, I want to do more!
...So I've decided to do something to give back to MS Ireland who do so much to help so many people who have things worse than me. I mean, getting rid of this disease would be nice too but you gotta start somewhere!
Though, me being the stubborn mule I am won't be bound by 50k, no, I will be taking on 150km throughout May and "leaving my limits behind" to help raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis, better access to treatments and to support people living with MS in Ireland!
There's over 9,000 people in Ireland living with multiple sclerosis. At the MS International Federation and MS Ireland, it’s their mission to leave MS where it belongs, behind us.
We can support this work in Ireland and around the world, so I’ve accepted The May 50K challenge to change lives.
If you want to donate, that would be awesome, but if you don't/can't then thanks for getting to the end of this and getting a little more clued up on me!
Thank you so much, stay safe!
So there we have it..
New drugs, who dis?
A Good Start is the Best Start
So, I mentioned it briefly last post but I'm currently transitioning between MS drugs. Basically there's no way to "treat" MS, these drugs (DMTs) are just there to make it stop getting worse rather than fix the damage already done. Now the way they (the newer more efficacious drugs) work is by keeping your immune system supressed because, if left to run wild with abandon it'll keep attacking things it shouldn't. Not ideal!
Twas the night before 50k and all through the 'net
Practice makes.... perfect?
You may be looking at my goal and thinking "Hm... I thought she said 150 km, why is 8km already logged?" - I mean, ok, as I am truly the main character in my story you're probably not but on the off chance you are, then you probably know that I love to make sure I'm massively, overly prepared before I start anything!
