Well it’s another warm day and my legs, like so many more of you out there it seems, are refusing to work properly again!
It wasn’t long ago that I would walk along the cliff tops on the way to a giant boot fair on a Saturday afternoon, walk round and round, and round then back home along the beach to get ready for dancing the night away at the club. Now, I can’t walk to the kitchen to make a cup of tea without holding on to furniture and walls to keep myself upright and then losing half of it by shaking so much on the way back. Good Lord!
Wondering if there Is anyone, like myself, trying to cope with this MS malarkey and have an ileostomy/colostomy too, where being cut from sternum to pubic bone was the only option in an emergency op.
I only ask as I think I’m right in thinking that I would not have half the problems I do were it not for the fact that I’ve been cut so much. I’d love to know how you’re coping with everything and whether you’re getting any kind of help.
My MS Nurse had suggested that any type of exercising to build up my core muscles etc. would not really work so would be useless, so have not pushed myself to do exercises; but I’m now left struggling to hold myself up straight, walk etc., I’ve got a lovely six pack… of flabby muscle!!
