Usefull MS information


Sylvia Lawry
Who is she I hear you ask, well she is the lady we can thank for starting the MS Society’s around the world, she foundered the society in 1946. Read all about her at- http://www.slcmsr.net/en/about/sylvia-lawry.html

Did you know over 100,000 thousand people in the UK suffer from MS these figures I didn’t just pluck out of the sky, they came from the following website, read more http://www.mssociety.org.uk/what-is-ms Did you know more than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide once again here is the web site where I got this information http://www.nationalmssociety.org/what-is-Ms/MS-FAQ-s

Did you know there are more than 90 organisations are affiliated to the MS International Federation globally, check out http://www.msis.org you can find a list of organisations around the world on this site. I have also located a pdf  that has maps of different parts of the world affected.   http://www.who.int/mental_health/neurology/Atlas_MS_WEB.pdf

They have not yet found a cause for MS however there are many theories, but nothing that can be substantiated. One thought is lack of vitamin ‘D’ which is the sunshine vitamin. I spent the first 10 years of my life in Africa, very near the equator so I would have thought that I had a good dose of vitamin ‘D’. The map from the above web site shows the further away from the equator you are, the more chance you have of MS… interesting.

Another thought is that it may be viral, like having chicken pox or glandular fever both of which I had as a child. Anyway have a look at the International MS Society web site http://www.msif.org/ and follow the links to “What is MS?” “Causes” and “Learn more”

I am sure it is just a matter of time before they do have an answer/ cure for MS and that is the same for many other disease, cancer for instance, researchers do seem to be closer to finding the answer to at least some types of cancer, and one day they will find a cure for this and all sorts of disease so until then its just a matter of time and until then I believe we just have to make the most of what we are given. We could be a lot worse off… there people all around the world fighting for their lives or unfortunate enough to live in a country at war, so I cannot and will not complain.

On a lighter note I took “Zippy” my new red wheelchair out last night, we went to a trivia night quiz at our local Pub. The pub has recently been taken over by two lovely ladies, before they arrived the place was going down hill rapidly and the village was very close to loosing its local. Luckily the new girls stepped in and rescued it, they have done a fantastic job and all the locals have come back to support them, it so nice to see people back in there that I haven’t seen for years, thank you ladies it’s so nice to have our local back. They are starting to serve food again and the new chef starts at the weekend, so we will try it out and report back. If the food is as good as the rest of the place it will be great.

Hope you have found the article informative, Useful MS information food for thought… until next time bye for now
