The Millennial Patient -We are the Millennials

Living With Multiple Sclerosis

Welcome to The Millennial Patient 

a blog about living with Multiple Sclerosis.

This blog chronicles my experiences living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and shares ideas and strategies I have learnt to help me manage life with a chronic illness.

I am an experienced peer support worker and I also want to create a virtual space where people can find support through shared experiences. For this reason, I will always encourage readers to post their knowledge and tips in the comment sections of posts. The more perspectives and ideas we have the better.

Also if there are subjects you would like to see covered, you can contact me via the contact page. After all, I want to write about things that are of importance to you. If it is something I have experience with I will share it in an up and coming post. Peer support is a two-way conversation after all. At the moment I’m committing myself to one post a week due to other commitments (damn relapses ), so be sure to follow the page to receive notifications when a new post is available.

Finally, it is not my intention to tell others what to do.

An individual’s chronic illness and the impact it has on their life is unique. While sharing stories is important, it is also important to remember what works for one person may not work for another.

We are all unique. That’s what makes support networks our strongest ally against chronic illness.
