When does the hose pipe ban begin?
Some of the worst weather in 250 years and we have been battling with it for months now. If you live in Britain there is nothing more comforting than knowing that, in any situation, with family, friends or perfect strangers you can have a chat about something we all have in common,the weather!
Our weather is changeable and unpredictable, scenes of people, battling on a daily basis to save their homes, possessions and keep themselves and their families safe from the unpredictable has become normality. Sound familiar?
MSers battle unpredictability on a daily basis. Our normality, 24 hours of every day, 365 days of every year yet we are not on a 24 hour news feed and, at present, our storm won’t “improve” and go away.
This begs a question. Why aren’t we on 24 hour news feed? Why aren’t we shouting from the rooftops saying “You think a bit of wind and rain is hard work? Take a look at our worlds!.
The cover photo on this issue represents two things to me. The first is rain, which everyone understands, and the second is Optic Neuritis Tim Barton
We don’t shout because we have “War Spirit” and we are some of the strongest people in the world. The rest of the world just don’t know it, or worse, ignore it. I have been thinking a lot recently about how little people “Really Know” about MS. Everyone has a friend, work colleague or a relative who has it and they think they know what MS is like. Do they really?
The cover photo on this issue represents two things to me. The first is rain, which everyone understands, and the second is Optic Neuritis, eye damage caused by an MS attack. The blurred images through the raindrops on the cover is just like my Optic Neuritis 24/7. Show this to your friends and then ask the question. Do you really know what MS is?
Keep well, keep positive, keep moving and, most of all, keep fighting.
