A Time to Talk

Living with a neurological condition can create a range of challenges.  There are so many questions to ask, and feelings to cope with, it can be difficult to know where to turn.  That’s how ‘Time to Talk’ aims to help.  A monthly get together at The Brightwell, a centre for neurological wellbeing, will provide support and information and a place to share experiences and ideas.  Each session will focus on a different topic, ranging from treatments and therapies, to diet and exercise.  

Helen, diagnosed with MS three years ago, has found it really helpful to visit the Centre and talk about her condition.  She said “When I first started noticing my symptoms, I didn’t know what was happening.  It was so difficult to describe to anyone how I was feeling, so it was a real comfort to find a place where people understood what I was going through.  More recently, I have been given the choice of a variety of treatments, and have no idea which option to choose.  I’m hoping that ‘Time to Talk’ will give me the chance to talk to other people about the treatments they are taking, and how they arrived at their decision.”

The Brightwell Centre Manager, Doro Pasantes, is looking forward to launching ‘Time to Talk’ to provide a relaxed and informal opportunity for people to meet.  She said “This will be a fantastic space for people to share their life experiences, how they manage their symptoms and deal with the challenges that anyone living with a neurological condition faces day to day.  This can be a great support to those people coming to terms with living with a long term neurological condition”.

‘Time to Talk’  Starts Tuesday 11th February 2020 at 2pm, and will continue every second Tuesday of the month at the same time.  It’s open to anyone with a neurological condition and their carer’s.
