A Letter A Day… Alasdair

I’ve been asked by people from different parts of the world if there is a way they can read the 32 diagnosis letters I received earlier this year as part of the Step Inside MS project. In response, I promised that once the exhibition had finished its summer tour of South Lanarkshire libraries I would post them all on here.

I thought a nice way to do this would be to post a letter a day starting on September 1st, in order that each letter receives the focus it deserves. My plan is to do this alphabetically, so today I’m posting Alasdair’s letter.

Thanks again to everyone who took part in the project and to everyone who supported it!

Letter writer Steve and his wife Caroline visit the Step Inside MS exhibition in Larkhall

One of our letter writers, Steve, his wife, Caroline, and their Westie, Emily, recently paid a visit to Larkhall library to see the Step Inside MS exhibition. Steve was kind enough to send me a blog post, which you can read below.

I was very moved by his description of their response to the letters and I share his hope that steps might soon be taken to improve the experience of being diagnosed.
