MS Stories: Tim’s Journey to Walk Again

This video made by Jack Barton is all about Jack’s father, Tim. Tim was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis nine years ago and has to undergo monthly intravenous treatments to keep his MS stable. He talks about coming to terms with the disease, how the diagnosis affected his family, how little information there is about the condition, and how a positive mindset helps him through his MS journey.

Jack has set up a Facebook group called the “Positive Wobbly Warriors” which aims to share ways that newly diagnosed and established MS patients can change the way they view their condition and get the best out of their lives, as well as offer support and advice to each other.

    Hi, I was diagnosed with RR ms about 12 years ago. For about 7 or 8 years I was ok and walking, then 4 years ago I had to start walking with crutches. Since then have gone down hill and now I’m in a wheel chair full time, I’m on a trial drug called Campath1H at Addenbrookes hospital. I think I spend to much time feeling sorry for myself. It’s just so frustrating because I could walk and now can’t. I’ve tried steroids twice but they didn’t work. Have you always crutches or did you ever walk without them. Would love some feed back. Thankyou, Anne
