Am facing a significant expenditure to make myself truly independent. For a cascade of reasons had to get all the adaptions on my new Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle [WAV] before I had a motorized wheelchair. Now to use it as intended is another significant outlay for something called a Dock n Lock system. Am not whining – well I am a tad – but there’s so much too absorb with MS, dealing with being disabled and getting on with life that this sort of thing often happens. Is it just me? Or do you find all the complexities sometimes overwhelming?
Hi John, yes I do. I’ve had PPMS since 2012 and still to this day I am adapting to it. It sure changed my life, and no-one gets it. They think your doing fine when your pushing a walker in front of you, but your not fine, can’t walk without it.
My life is mostly online now. I also draw when I get an idea that would look good on paper. I have chat rooms I visit and oh the shopping (Aliexpress) I have done in the last year, what fun it was. I have a whole new wardrobe as I have put on weight from sitting around and eating chocolate lol.
