Patients, families, friends and carers often see disease with varied views. This study looks at the interpretation of narratives and the mechanisms by which people with neuro-degenerative conditions (in this instance, Motor-Nerone Disease) and their carers, be it family members or paid help, construct and view the effect of the disease upon their lives. The research methods employed will look in particular at the ‘stories’ of their life and how they cope with illness.
