    Christian Donlan has written a very honest account of discovering and living with Multiple Sclerosis. Made me double take when I saw his mug on the front page of the Guardian website:

    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/mar/31/multiple-sclerosis-silent-disaster-unfolding-unmapped-mind

    The article itself is very heartfelt and quite eye-opening. Listen to your body is definitely one of the messages I took from it! All the best for the future, Christian.

    My friends daughter was diagnosed with MS, she had some sort of stem cell treatment and, as far as I know, is 100% again.

    Very eloquently written, seems trite to say but I hope the regression or at least the symptoms are abated for years to come.

    Middle age and the inevitable getting older is enough to deal with as it is.

    I remember that 2014 article well, very poignant. Can't believe it's been nearly 4 years since it was written, I hope Christian is still positive and finding solace through gaming. I'll haven't read the guardian article but will do when I get 5 minutes.
