Welcome home, we are back

Hi and, if you have visited before, it´s great to welcome you again.

This site has not been added to for a few months but a lot has happened in the meantime – including switching our domain registry and hosting to WordPress.

With that comes a new look and a slight repositioning as MS, Disability & Living Life. This gives a wider scope of subjects that add to the existing health and disability core.

As far as posts go, I intend to be more selective and less prolific than previously – hopefully quality will win over quantity.

I hope you enjoy the changes.

Why ’50 shades’?

Ok, so if you are a new visitor, you may be wondering why this MS, Disability & Living Life site is called 50shadesofsun.

Well, the Sun, being at the centre of our solar system, is the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Sun equals life.

Disability creates different aspects, or shades, of how we see, adapt and live our lives. So, ‘aspects of life’ become ‘shades of sun’ and ‘living our lives’ becomes ‘living life’.

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 site explores the very many facets of life, such as disability, and topics may include, but not be limited to:

  • Human interest stories
  • Humour
  • Personal anecdotes
  • Living with disabilities and chronic illnesses:
    • Symptoms
    • Treatments
    • Research / studies
    • Preventative measures & precautions
    • Health education
  • Disability aids
  • Disability rights and politics
  • Access and mobility

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 link to return here.

If there is any particular topic that you’d like me to write about, please let me know – just send an email to ian@50shadesofsun.com.
