I have been lurking & reading for a couple of months.
I’m a 39 year old scientist, Surrey based, and I am currently recovering from optic neuritis (began 3 months ago). Although vision is much improved, it changes from day to day & still disconcerting. It lead to diagnosis in February. No surprise, really, as I had lesions, numbness & loss of proprioception 10 years ago, and MS is on both sides of my family.
I am fortunate that I am currently able bodied, in fulltime employment & in the position to do something to help.
Today I entered the ballot for the 2016 London Marathon (hopefully) to run for the MS Soc.
I feel like I should be doing something, but what else can I do to help? Any ideas or suggestions?
