Sheila highlights the impact of a hidden disability
'My name is Sheila and I live with MS and a range of neurological problems which impact on my communication. As I look OK, the difficulties can be unseen. My cognitive difficulty affects my speed of comprehension and difficulty with word finding, especially if there is a lot of distraction and background noise. My difficulties can impact on me more than my mobility difficulties.'
