Then, one morning, Tim woke and his whole left side wouldn t work. He d suspected something was wrong before that day but had done his best to ignore it. If only it was so simple. An eventual diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) meant an end to the frenetic, high-energy life Tim was living. He had to start again He kept his diagnosis to himself, but secrets are a burden.
