Who am I?

Willeke image blog

I admit, I am the quirky, but also weird one of the bunch. The more physical pains I have, the more I want to live. The more MS gets in my way, the more I want to feel, achieve and succeed.

Living in Ireland since 2002 because of just loving everything Irish, and not liking my native country Belgium that much. You can guess I’m passionate about Ireland so, as well as psychology, books, nature, history, rugby and my Dr Martens boots.

Diagnosed with relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis in 2005. Life’s good despite chronic pain and having to live life the slow way. Severe fatigue, trigeminal neuralgia and eye pains uncontrollable at times, but no steep decline has emerged. This is proof that retiring from work was the best thing I ever did. Whenever I feel well enough to write, I turn my voice and free time into a weapon of choice, and now advocate better MS and neurological services in Ireland.

I’m a Blog Awards Ireland 2014 finalist and was shortlisted in the 2013 edition of the Irish Blog Awards.

Note: While I do read all comments personally, I can’t respond to all messages the same day due to fatigue and chronic pain issues. I will however do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
