Good afternoon everybody,
recently a friend of mine who has ms had a cardiac arrest. Thankfully they managed to resusitate her. Iam not sure of all the details but a know it was due to ms. As a result she was in rehabilitation for several months.
I have had ms for several years & at present i am unable to work, drive or walk more than a few steps so still realise how lucky l am as I can still self care & do not need a carer. however I do not know what the future holds. After what happened to my friend I have recently been thinking about an advanced directive if that ever happened to me I would not want to be reliant on others.
I do not wish to appear morbid but was wondering if anybody had thought of this or had any information about how I would go about this. I spoke to my ms nurse & she told me I should ask my gp. I did this & she printed off some forms from nhs choices that I should read mentioned that I would need to get a solicitor & mentioned a price of £150 pounds.It all sounds very complicated & expensive, any advise would be appreciated, thank you
