About Me

with 12 comments

My name is Maggie. I’m 34 and live in sunny South Africa. I’m a capricious Capricorn. I’m married. Happily. Baby on the way after 12 years of marriage :-). I have multiple sclerosis (dx Oct 2001). Sometimes it has me, but not very often. I like to read. I love listening to music. I quite fancy blogging. I play the piano (quite well). I play the harmonica (quite badly). That’s about it, in a nutshell.

  5. Hi,

    I came across your blog via the Carnival Of MS Bloggers, I am Squiffy of Squiffy’s House of Fun, on the list ;O)

    You may be interested to hear about a new, unique and inclusive Global Multiple Sclerosis Community providing not only up to date MS News and Stories, but a place where those affected by Multiple Sclerosis can communicate with others affected by the disease, and the wider public, by means of Online Blogs, Discussion Forums and Net-based social interaction, which the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre launched on Thursday in collaboration with cre8Buzz.

    Why not come and have a look, there are already some established MS bloggers signed up, and maybe join in, it is a great way to promote your blogs etc.

  8. My name is Donna Sullivan and I am the community manager for Real MS – a new website/blog/social media effort focused on the Multiple Sclerosis Community. Thank you for taking a moment to learn about a truly unique program focused on the MS community called Real MS.

    A little about Real MS:

    Real MS is an international campaign that aims to raise global awareness of the disease and demonstrate how life with MS can be redefined in a positive and fulfilling way. Comprising educational competitions throughout 2010 and into 2011, this campaign hopes to give a voice to those touched by MS, and celebrate their stories, their achievements and their ideas for the future management of the disease. The goal of the first campaign competition, Real MS: Your Story, is to show the world by producing a short film about the disease that life with MS can be redefined in a positive and fulfilling way. The program is sponsored by Merck Serono, a pharmaceutical company based out of Geneva, Switzerland.

    So why are we reaching out to you?

    We are reaching out to you because you are an influential voice in the community and want to make you aware of this exciting program. Please take a look at the site and let us know what you think. If you think your audience would be interested in the contest then we invite you to write about it. Full details and creative assets can be found at http://www.realmsvoices.com/about/helpspreadtheword. We are also available for interviews, just send us an email back and we can find a time that works.

    All the best,

  9. Maggie,

    Love your blog……..My name is Donna Sullivan and I am the community manager for Real MS – a new website/blog/social media effort focused on the Multiple Sclerosis Community. We have recently launched a global campaign, and would like to give you some information about our mission and what we hope to contribute to individuals and families who are living with Multiple Sclerosis.

    Real MS is an international campaign that aims to raise global awareness of the disease and demonstrate how life with MS can be redefined in a positive and fulfilling way. The general public has so many misconceptions about MS that individuals who are diagnosed, must address every day. We feel it is important to educate about the realities of living with Multiple Sclerosis and demonstrate the strength, courage and vitality of the MS Community.

    Comprising educational competitions throughout 2010 and into 2011, this campaign hopes to give a voice to those touched by MS, and celebrate their stories, their achievements and their ideas for the future management of the disease. The goal of the first campaign competition, Real MS: Your Story, is to show the world by producing a short film about the disease that life with MS can be redefined in a positive and fulfilling way. A well known Director will produce the winning entry, and the winner will be flown to the set during production. The program is sponsored by Merck Serono, a pharmaceutical company based out of Geneva, Switzerland.

    So why are we reaching out to you?

    We are reaching out to you because you are an influential voice in the community and want to make you aware of this exciting program. Please take a look at the site and let us know what you think. If you think your audience would be interested in the contest then we invite you to write about it.

  10. I have CFS/ME. I am so sorry to hear of your MS. I have a question, My Irish grandmother used to call me something like this – Skinnymalink ma doodle dum. Do the ring a bell. I saw you use a part of the saying. It was that I was a skinny child and so said it with such love. Now I can figure out the spelling!

  12. Wow, this MS is really as common a Mullet in Boksburg!
    I think it is one of those things that is maybe not given enough PR? When I look at all the hits, followers and comments related to this site … it is hard to imagine so many people living the best life they can with this bugger.
    I think what makes you special is not your illness, but the suberb way in which you are able to deal with it. Strongs.
