Life As A Parent With MS

August 6, 2015

What is it like to be a disabled parent with a young child?

Nicola Smith, who has multiple sclerosis (MS), has told the Victoria Derbyshire programme she is worried her condition will lead her six-year-old son, Finlay, to miss out.

She told the programme that because of the tiredness the condition can cause, everyday parenting tasks like taking her son to school can also make her feel “like you’ve run a marathon”.

    There’s no real reason her son should miss out, but obviously some things need to be done slightly differently and help may be needed. With a little ingenuity and rest when needed a normal life is still possible, for her and her son.
