Five things…….

This is Tripping Through Treacle!!

Tripping Through Treacle

When I told Hubs that I was going to write a blog post about the 5 things that multiple sclerosis has given me, he was incredulous. ’Whathas it given you? It should be the 5 things it has taken away’.

I could write a novel about the things multiple sclerosis has taken away from me – and maybe one day I will! Life isbloody difficultmuch harder now, but maybe reflecting on a few of the good things that come out of having a chronic illness like MS will help me and others to feel a bit more positive. So, here goes….
