Episode 139: Mutiple Sclerosis, parenting and Primark proposals
On the day his daughter took her first steps, Christian Donlan was told he had Multiple Sclerosis. In this episode, he and his wife Sarah Lea discuss the issues around trying to parent while coming to terms with the diagnosis. Honestly, it's more fun than it sounds.
Christian tells us about his book, The Unmapped Mind, and how being told you have MS is a bit like being William Shatner in an episode of Columbo. We discuss whether the diagnosis affected their decision not to have a second child, and why Christian proposed in Primark after only a month.
His brilliant book is out now. You can follow Christian on Twitter @DonlanWords, and read his writing about video games on eurogamer.net.
