He asked me if I'd mind speaking to a reporter and doing the article? Of course I said yes! Since being diagnosed with MS I have found that I can't be involved in the theatre as I once had been but because of all that training, I have been told, more than once, that I speak very well about my diagnosis and about my experiences of living with the disease. I guess I might as well put that training to good use and if I can help one member of the general public understand a small amount of what it's like living with a chronic illness.....or in my case three chronic illnesses......then it's worth my while doing it!
The reporter rang me last Friday 13th May and we were talking for about an hour! When we'd finished I asked if she could email the article to me before she published it. She said she definitely would because she always does when it's an article on someones health. Later that evening I received the email with the article and I was really impressed with it. She had constructed it really well and Martin and I were both very happy with it. It was actually published on their website on Sunday last weekend and the following link will take you to the article......enjoy! XxXxX
