Who are we and what do we do?
Think back to when you were diagnosed with M.S -you felt lonely? frightened? Angry? Huge sense of loss? The world seemed a lonely place.
There was very little support, contact. Information? drugs or therapy available.
Many consultants advised you to ‘take it easy’ and give up work, effectively saying there was nothing that would help slow or even help in the progression of the condition.
M.S Co-ordinator Nurse, Elaine Bosley and Consultant Rudy Capildeo didn’t believe this. They were very aware of the lack of support post diagnosis? They also challenged the effects of lack of regular physical exercise being offered to people with M.S, they then started a monthly group.
So what do we do? Well, when you arrive at the group the hardest thing is to walk through the door! But once you have, you will become part of our community.
Elaine is a wealth of information and advice and can offer advice and counsel to help equip you with the knowledge to deal with M.S.
The emphasis of our group is exercise with fun and new friends. YOU being YOURSELF.
Come along, bring a friend or family member, take a look for yourself and try us for size. Never any harm in just looking, We promise you that the world is not so lonely now.
