Hello. I’m new to the forums here and I look forward to participating and learning.
I was diagnosed with RRMS in 1999 by the combination of symptoms and MRI. As the years went on wwlith having mild relapses, it eventually came to the point where relapses virtually stopped although I did have daily MS symptoms. My diagnosis changed to SPMS, and eventually I was told extremely slow progressing.
I manage in my home with no mobility aid for the most part, but sometimes I do use my walker. To go out where walking short distances, I take my walker. Otherwise I take the handicap bus with my brand new power wheelchair. For the last year and a half I used a scooter, but my OT graduated me up to the chair. That was hard.
I look forward to “meeting” people here and learning new things.
