These last few months have been heartbreaking.
The Teenager has struggled with a good few issues, but with a lot of support he now seems to be back to his usual positive self.
All your amazing blog comments and tweets really sustained him through some pretty dark days and he’s told me numerous times how grateful and completely overwhelmed he is that people took the time to write to him.
And not only that, most of you have watched him grow up through this blog and I know you’re all rooting for him. He can’t thank you enough.
I spoke to him the other day and to hear the happiness in his voice was fantastic. From feeling helpless, and watching as he crumbled has been truly dreadful. Being a parent is beyond painful at times.
But ultimately, we both have only one goal in mind – to rise above the constraints MS may have placed on us.
He is in a brilliant house-share (newly-renovated, it puts my humble cottage to shame), is eating well, exercising and studying. Through all the turmoil, he has never locked himself away, no matter how bad he felt. His determination, at his age, is remarkable.
I just wanted to give you a quick update and apologise for not blogging recently – and to thank you all so, so much for being there for him when he needed it the most.
