My life with Motor Neurone Disease began some time before I knew it. This blog describes my journey to diagnosis and my attempts to cope with the disease since then.
Public awareness of MND has grown recently, particularly since campaigns like the ice bucket challenge. So, why am I adding to the list of articles and blogs? Firstly, and perhaps selfishly, I am doing it for myself. I have found that writing about my experience of MND has helped me to come to terms with having a terminal illness. Secondly, although MND symptoms vary considerably, I hope this blog might help fellow sufferers, their carers, and anyone else who is interested, to better understand the effects of this dreadful disease.
