Thank you

No man’s an island, we weave connections through waves of emotions, through faith and happy occasions. This month, I’ve been very lucky to have found waves meeting others, and to have found people with the kindest of hearts, the softest of voices but the strongest of minds. This is for them.

Joan, Aoife, Niamh, Karen, Declan, Trevis, Lucina, Miriam, Diana, Natalia, Ava, Ruth

My GP, MS nurse, neurologist, ophthalmologist and many others in the two hospitals I attend

The many friends back in Belgium and in Ireland, especially Claudia, Dirk, Susie, Jean, Audrey and Gratiane

and as always:

My mom who never gives up, even in the strongest of seas, every single day.

    1. Just added your name Jean because you’ve been an influence on my writing also by writing such intimate moments about your parents. I don’t always hit ‘Like’ but I do love your posts!

      1. Ah thanks, Billie! I’m honoured. The experiences of people with MS are very, very close to my heart, having done a lot of research in that field and having had the pleasure of working through MS Ireland ~ a great organisation by any possible standard.

        1. It’s totally my pleasure, Jean! It absolutely is a great organisation, I know I keep on writing about them, simply because they do an enormous job for people with MS. The last two years their profile skyrocketed by bringing life with MS to the fore. Every bit of positive media about them is happily shared because they helped me big time since being diagnosed.
