I live with my husband Marcus in Norfolk with our two cats and dog. We have two very beautiful grown-up daughters and 2 grandsons of whom we are very proud.
I was diagnosed with MS in August 2000 at the age of 44, but my MS can now be traced back to when I was 32 or younger. I have Relapsing/Remitting MS and was having attacks every 6 months; it took months for a relapse to recede, only to have another one start. In October 2003 I was told I had Secondary Progressive and there was nothing anyone could do to help me. I decided to take matters into my own hands, and started LDN in December 2003. On my next check-up at the hospital in February 2004, I was told I didn't have Secondary Progressive, but was in fact still Relapsing/Remitting. LDN has helped me with fatigue, restless legs, bladder, bowel, burning legs, leg strength, tingling in feet, sleeping and 'fog in the head'. I now have a better quality of life and hope for the future.
I live in Enfield, North London. I have one daughter and two sons.
My problems started in August 2001 with double vision. I was diagnosed with Relapsing/Remitting MS in January 2003, after my second episode. In July 2003 I started receiving beta-interferon treatment which, in my opinion, has progressed the disease.
I met Linda Elsegood on the internet, and she brought LDN to my attention. I feel it is the most positive MS treatment available so far. I started LDN in July 2004, and immediately slept better, without waking in the night with restless legs. I am still in the early days of treatment, so there may be more improvements to come. As long as I don't get any worse, I will be happy.
I believe that LDN should be made available to all MS patients, and this is why I joined the team.
I am an entrepreneur, married to Lesley, and we live in Edinburgh, Scotland with our daughter Rosie.
I've had MS since the age of 32; but this hasn't stopped me from being a hard worker, or carrying on with my life! For several months, I had done a lot of research into LDN, which convinced me of its many benefits, and in June 2005, I attended the first LDN conference in New York. I felt so strongly in favour of LDN that I wanted to get involved with the Charity, and offered my services as a Trustee, which were accepted.
