Earlier in 2019, Tracy decided to make significant lifestyle changes to feel healthier. 

Tracy lives with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  MS is a lifelong condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.

Tracy had a tough time when she was diagnosed with MS as she had to leave her job as a manager, and this led to her becoming isolated. Tracy’s health dipped and she fell into poor eating habits.  It was almost like a vicious cycle and Tracy felt that she’d become someone that she didn’t know.

Tracy’s team have supported her for about nine years now and in that time they’ve achieved many positive changes together, including moving into a wheelchair-friendly flat with far better accessibility. 

When Tracy shared her goal to lead a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight, her team supported her to plan menus to make healthier food choices, and to join a gym. Already, the positive choices that Tracy has made are having a huge impact on her physical health and wellbeing.  Tracy is feeling more confident and finding it easier to talk to people again.

Sarah, the manager of Tracy’s service in Glasgow, told us that:

“Tracy feels more independent and is able to go out without support now; her social life is better than ever before”.
