The MS Society provide a vital resource for those who are affected by the condition. Far from being negative, it is realistic and pragmatic - the condition is unique to each person who has it and it i...mpact varies greatly. Some of us who live with MS are more fortunate than others and, ultimately, we all respond differently. The MS Society do their best to reflect this. See More

Takes the woe is me approach and negative side to all things MS and benefit related. Rather than focusing on what we can do, shouts about what we can’t do.

Fantastic point of reference for keeping up to date with all the latest MS news and research. Ive used it for years - since my diagnosis. From Deborah Hales

This page focuses too much on the benefit support side of MS rather than focusing on what help is available for those who are still in work to stay that way!

It’s easy to let MS get you down (I have PP MS). Not surprising at all – you can’t do what you used to do. But forget the immobility issues and use the internet to help you. It’s free, and can be acce...ssed when it suits your body. I discovered this by pure chance. I started posting photos of my suppers to my personal Facebook page about 2 years ago. I didn’t do this often, but when I did, lots of my friends liked them. When I asked them why, they said they found them ‘inspirational’. So I started a dedicated page, called My Easy Suppers. A little over a year later, I have 13,300+ fans, increasing by about 1,000 a month, who love what I do. Wow! My point is that if you have an interest or hobby, you could do the same. It certainly beats being pissed off by having MS! See More

Hi all.I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with MS. Absolutely terrifying time, no idea, no information or help just given the news and sent home. Drs are confident that this is RRMS. Still a way to go to u...nderstand it all. So lucky to have an amazing circle, wonderful friends and family. I did the great Manchester run in may for my friend who has ppms. Little did I know all my training I had MS, it won't beat me, define me it may challenge me... I hope its ready for me!!! Cannot wait to build me strength and get my trainers back on and RUN!

Was just out for the First time on My Mobility Scooter. Was given a grant from the MS Society. I'm truly grateful and appreciate it so much. Given me some much needed independence back. Can't wait for... the sun to shine and be able to take my daughter to the swing park. The simple Things thank you all so much. See More

I was lucky enough when diagnosed to go along to a local MS society and obtain some advice from a lovely helper there . I was in need of answers and got them so for that I am truly grateful . On the d...own side it has now been closed and moved elsewhere and I can see why as there was very little uptake in the classes. It might have been better being open at night for a social gathering x See More

It's really easy to feel that a diagnosis is the end of the world, but pages like this just show that it isn't the case. It's a fantastic resource- I was officially diagnosed earlier this year, this p...age and the website helped me make sense of my diagnosis and helped my choices in regards to DMDs. See More

This society is my lifeline! Unfortunately I live on a tiny village in mid Wales Gwynedd and there is no support for me at all unless I travel nearly 3hrs to the nearest neurology department in Bango...r hospital :/ without the help and advice on here I wouldn't know anything. It stops me from thinking I'm not going crazy! When certain things crop up with my ms. I've had it 25yrs now and still fighting thanks to the ms helpline :) xxxx See More

My dad has had MS for as long as I can remember. He is now in a wheelchair full time & struggles to transfer. He has had so much support from different groups & yourselves to make his life easier, it'...s amazing. In a few days I'm going my first ever run, the Color run. I've been trying to get fit for a while, lost nearly 3 stone, & even though it's not timed I'm going to run the whole of it to challenge myself! If anyone would like to read more about my dads story & sponsor/donate towards the MS Society UK, I would be so happy. See More

I was diagnosed over 6 months ago with MS and had been suffering symptoms since I was 14. I'm now coming upto 21 and it has all been a terrible experience I never thought it would happen to me. Everyt...hing is still so fairly new but making so much sense after all the health issues I had before this diagnosis. Now and then I look on the MS Society website to look up all the latest. I know now that I am NOT alone and there is help out there✌️. See More

Deciding to leave work can be very difficult. For some people with MS, it is made even harder because they don’t get the support they need. Our new report looks at the issues: http://mssoc.uk/2Bkecyb.

A good night’s sleep is important. But pain and muscle spasms can be too severe. For some people with MS, there’s just no treatment – so they feel driven to use illegal forms of cannabis.

Cannabis needs to be legalised for medicinal use! Help people with MS and tweet or email your MP: http://mssoc.uk/2EcQ2rn
