News and Opinions about MS, Health & Disability

Welcome Home




Ok, so you may be wondering why this MS, Health & Disability website is called 50shadesofsun.

Well, the Sun is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Sun equals life.

Health & disability create different aspects, or shades, of how we see, adapt and live our lives. So, ‘aspects of life’ become ‘shades of sun’.

The figure ‘50’ illustrates that there are many aspects of life or shades of sun. There is no magic to the 50 figure – just a well-known book title.

This website explores the very many facets of health & disability including:

  • Symptoms
  • Treatments
  • Research / studies
  • Preventative measures & precautions
  • Health education
  • Living with disabilities and illnesses
  • Disability aids
  • Disability rights and politics

I hope that you will find much of interest here, returning many times and spreading the word to family and friends.

On every page you will find links to my latest post, monthly archives of previous posts and a number of permanent pages. There is even one to return here.

If there is any particular health or disability topic that you’d like me to write about, please let me know – just send an email to

Finally, one legal point: I am not a medical professional and any opinions expressed anywhere in this website are purely personal and do not constitute medical advice of any kind.
