Hi Everyone, My name is Declan Groeger and I live in Cork, Ireland with my wife Jean; we were married in 1979. I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) in 1988. MS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects about 2,300,000 around the world, so I am a member of a very exclusive club. There are very strict membership acceptance criteria and membership may not be cancelled, ever.

I rely on a wheelchair when outside our home but use a cane or other walking aid while inside. Accessibility is important to me and I also ramble on about MS and other issues. I have come to enjoy writing or more correctly trying to write. (Updated November 2015). Please feel free to leave a comment or use the ‘contact’ button (on the menu bar) for a private message.

  1. I am not sure if these processed foods are available in Cork or if you use these products, but I have lists of products that have a toxin that causes lesions. I hope you can eliminate the cause of your MS. Praying for your health and wellness and to walk again. http://jesusdiedandlives.wordpress.com

    A little bit of thoughtfulness could make a huge difference to people with disability and those with buggies.For instance if shops put signs out on paths that limit the amount of room there is on a pavement, it becomes an issue where there shouldnt have been one.

  4. Maybe people could rate their shopping centres, theatres, cinemas, churches, and other public places in terms of their accessibility for others- parents with prams , wheelchairs, partially sighted etc. we were shocked recently to see a public bus in Lanzarote with a sign saying buggies were not allowed on the bus!
