    Hi @nikki6, nice to meet you!

    I've moved your post into our Parents and Carers category, so that others in similar situations may be more likely to see it: you might also like to have a read through past discussions yourself. The MS Society also has a great resource on coping when somebody close to you has MS, in case you haven't seen it already. 

    Let us know if we can be of any assistance and hope you have a lovely day!

    Hi @nikki6, I don't know if you have already been informed but there are many MS coffee mornings in lots of Towns and Cities around the Country and you should be able to find them easy on the tinternet, good luck from SethLaa
