MSIF have updated their COVID-19 information to include:
World MS Day 2021 took place on Sunday May 30th and the theme of this year's campaign was 'Connections'. In the days leading up to World MS Day and on the day itself MS Ireland was featured in national and regional media on television, radio and print.
We had some brilliant ambassadors sharing their stories on what life is like living with Multiple Sclerosis all of which you can now read and watch back below.
Allow Yourself to Grieve
I trudged on in complete denial for the first four months after the shock of my MS diagnosis. Overloaded with a host of new symptoms, I felt angry for being sick. A guilty narrative played over and over in my head like a depressing Moby track: If only I had taken better care of myself, ‘I’ wouldn’t have created more lesions. I remember going to a restaurant and having complete sensory overload. I became so overheated I had to strip off in the loo and splash myself with water like a complete lunatic.
Our Carers Week ‘Self-care for Carers’ webinar with Life Coach and Psychotherapist, Eileen Hopkins takes place tomorrow at 6pm. This webinar aims to provide carers with tools and techniques they can use to build or enhance their self-care routines
Are you one of Ireland's 391,000+ carers? Knowing that you are part of this large cohort of society may not be that comforting if you may feel isolated in this role. Or you may not identify yourself as a carer but simply do what needs to be done for your spouse/partner/child/family member with MS. But you are not alone.
For World MS Day we are proud to launch a brand new series of podcasts.
Nadia Anshasi was diagnosed with MS on World MS Day, she reflects on what this annual event really means to her.
World MS Day 2020 was certainly a little different to World MS Days in the past, as we had to change our plans due to the onset of COVID-19 and we quickly moved all our events, activities and webinars online as we embraced this new virtual world we found ourselves in.
Now well into a second year living with COVID-19 our fundraising efforts for 2021 continue to exist in the virtual and online sphere. Yet again we’ve had to postpone and cancel many of our physical, in-person events and fundraisers.
One event that we are absolutely thrilled to bring back is our Virtual Balloon Race!
To celebrate World MS Day, MS Ireland has been given the exciting opportunity of a radio takeover on Galway’s Flirt FM/101.3
MS Ireland Ambassador Jamie Crawford will be featuring tonight on RTÉ's Late Late Show!
