A letter to Multiple Sclerosis

Dear Multiple Sclerosis,

I have bided my time but it has now come to the point where I have no option but to complain. When you first arrived I have to say, I wasn’t best impressed, quite frankly you were a pain and I had to get my head around the fact that you were not going to go away. One thing that helped with this was that whilst I was in the midst of a horrible relapse I was comforted by the fact that there would be a remittance also – hence the name Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.

Can you imagine the disappointment and upset that you are causing by quite frankly not living up to your name. Every morning I wake hoping the remittance is going to start only to realise that still I cannot brush my own hair or teeth.

I think I have been patient enough, I think my family have put up with enough and I would like you to take this letter as a warning that if remittance is not forthcoming soon I may very well have to speak to other agencies about this as legally you have a responsibility under the trades description act, trading standards and I am sure other acts to provide the other side of this disease. If this does not happen and only 50% of what you stated remains then I will have no option but to take this matter further.

In anticipation of you help at your very earliest convenience,


Sarah Landfear
