MUTV is a premium television channel owned and operated by English football club Manchester United. The channel first broadcast on 10 September 1998.
This summer marks 17 years since I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. When I was told the news by a particularly offhand Consultant, I was devastated. I had visions of my life essentially stopping at the age of 34. I was scared. I thought my career was over. I dealt with it, on reflection, in a strange way.
The best years of my career have been since being diagnosed. Any problems I’ve had at work have been nothing to do with my illness. And my advice would be to tell people about it! The vast majority of people and employers are sympathetic and helpful – there’s really very little point in hiding it and I’m still not really sure why I did. So don’t suffer in silence – please contact me if I can help.
