Access all Areas

Ah, public transport… Train stations without elevators or escalators; Buses with seats for elderly or disabled people; Crutches or walking sticks you want to throw from the train right into the Irish Sea.

Access to a Public Loo!

I took some time to think about my approach to my blog post. “Access” encompasses so many issues it was a little bit daunting to pick one.

Access to Treatments

When I was first diagnosed with MS, I was given information on a number of drugs. At the time I felt that being diagnosed in my early twenties would have to work to my advantage as I would get on treatment faster and have it working in my system for a long time. As my MS was extremely active in the beginning, I felt the faster I could get on treatment the better. I looked through pages of booklets on treatments and read though clinical trials that were offered to me. One looked very appealing, but I felt that at that time I needed to be on something solid that had been tried and tested. After much research and reading, I decided to try Tysabri and went to my MS nurse with this decision. It seemed to me to be the gold star drug available for MS.

Anyhow, I was very happy to reap the benefits of his logistical nightmare when I was planning a trip to visit a friend (who also has MS) in Jolly Old London Town.
