WORLD MS DAY........27th MAY 2015

World MS Day - 27th May 2015 

Multiple Sclerosis or MS is a chronic illness that affects approximately 2.5 million people around the world. Around 100,000 people live with MS in the UK and it is thought that around 400,000 people live with it in America.
It is a complicated, debilitating and unpredictable illness because it affects everyone differently. There is a long list of symptoms but you will not get all of the symptoms, this is what makes it so could have a room full of people with MS but we'd all be living with a different set of symptoms! It is also why there are a lot of different treatments because what works for one might not work for someone else. 

In the UK there are a lot of charities out there that just concentrate on MS. They will be there for you if you need help, whether practical or emotional, they are all there to give support and lend a hand or an ear if you need them.

Here are just a few of the websites that will direct you to that help! 

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society

The MS Trust -

Good luck and stay strong!
