History with condition

I was diagnosed with relapsing MS in 2008, aged 28. I also live with polycystic ovarian syndrome and chronic urticaria/angiodema. I have experience in a broad carer's capacity for my younger sister who has ulcerative colitis and who has also experienced mental health issues including PTSD, anxiety and depression. I work full time as a Spanish-English translator/analyst for a business intelligence company but in my spare time I work with multiple stakeholders (including pharma, patient associations/charities, clinicians, patients and the healthcare industry) via my company The Spark Global to bring the patient voice into the healthcare journey, addressing issues that affect specific patient communities and cross-patient communities, as well as the healthcare industry.
