Consult Your GP Before Taking This Advice

I have no medical qualifications. I can only talk about multiple sclerosis because I’ve got it. I must stress that my body is not yours, and my MS is mine alone. However, this is the advice I gave myself, and so far, 26 years later, I wouldn’t change any of these ten suggestions.

If you want, show this plan of action to your GP, and if she says it’s crazy, go back to watching daytime TV and wait for the cure (which, by the way, they’re unlikely to find in your lifetime, and if they do, you won’t be a priority to receive it by then).

This, then, is the list. It will not cure you. At present, it is incurable – don’t let the internet tell you otherwise. Don’t buy snake venom! It is poisonous. The clue is in the name.

Because there is a lot to write about these suggestions, I will devote a separate post to each of them. Looking through them, I don’t think they only apply to MS. Who knows, maybe this is the start of a whole new philosophy of life? Watch this space . . .

  1. Get a medical team behind you.
  2. Keep eating but keep light.
  3. Keep moving.
  4. Keep thinking.
  5. Keep feeling.
  6. Keep your friends.
  7. Keep growing.
  8. Get connected.
  9. Say hello to the world.
  10. Keep planning.
