I have MND
Being told you have MND is a devastating blow. Shock, sadness, depression and disbelief are the initial emotions, and many ask, “Why Me?” It is important to find some way of accepting and adjusting to what is happening, if you possibly can, for your own peace of mind and for the sake of your family and friends.
Although there is currently no cure, a great deal can be done to maintain quality of life and address many of the effects of MND.
MNDSA can answer questions, provide support, help to access aids and equipment, and refer you to the right service at the right time. You can also access print and online publications about living better with MND, and attend information and education sessions.
