Single and chronically ill on Valentine’s Day?

You’re an alpha-woman even when you sometimes feel like a z-woman… zonked out on meds on the couch.

Being real!

Despite chronic pain and fatigue issues, I am making the best of my life, and I am doing everything possible to be the best version of myself as I can be. All I ask of you is some understanding of what I am going through, and know that every bad day is only making me stronger. Some days, though, I want you to hold my hand or hug me and tell me that everything will be OK.

GUEST POST: Using Social Media to Connect With Other MSers

Guest contributor Debra Robert: “The beauty of social media is that there is no right or wrong way to engage.”


Mum, I’m a very proud daughter. The way you overcame many obstacles in your life before, during and after your pregnancy with me, made you into a woman who stands up for herself, who is very funny, intelligent and simply, a good soul. We often tell one another how proud we are of each other, and I cannot think of a better person to … Read More Proud

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 … Read More Thank you

Each nominee … Read More Liebster Award! (no. 4)

Liebster Award (no. 3)!

Desperately behind writing new posts or replies to all your comments, I need to get my proverbial bum in action if I want to start writing properly again. Perfectionism is my middle name, but lately I’ve been slacking, oh yes I have. Allow me to hit myself on the hands in punishment… Ouch… That hurt! The first award I need to send on, was … Read More Liebster Award (no. 3)!

A future without chronic illness

I could think of many dates, selfish ones, productive ones and those that would mean a lot of friends and family. If I could choose though, I’d want to be there when a cure for MS is found. Two million people worldwide are living with this incurable illness in their brain and spinal cord, leading to disabilities that maim them or make them withdraw … Read More A future without chronic illness

Christmas: The Paradox of Our Time

“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, … Read More Christmas: The Paradox of Our Time
