I’m just watching te cycling from the paralympics. We look at these heroes who have overcome their physical limitations to prove that they aren’t limitations. But we do this sort of thing every day; whether it’s just getting dressed or cooking something, we do our daliy Olympics
Best wishes, Steve…
I completely agree Steve, its both humbling and inspiring to watch them, im absolutely full of admiration for their courage and dedication…I think you are right about us… ive had a sad week, there have been a few things that have got to me …problems with Frazers health, knocked my confidence, and iv’e developed a bit of a fear of social gatherings and even going shopping or on public transport have been really hard i know it will pass and i will pick up again but you are right… for us it is a daily battle and its just about never giving up and trying to keep our joy.
Michelle and Frazer xx
I just wanted to say I think you are very brave and I’m so relieved and glad that you finally have Frazer back with you. Time is a great healer and your confidence will slowly return. I know its easy to say but never give up. You have as much courage as those wonderful para-athletes.
Thinking of you and Frazer.
I know what you are saying Steve. Completely agree. I admire and respect them all so much. Just one thing. In the back of my mind. I keep thinking “if they have ms and can do that why cant’I”. So for some people it can also make us wonder are we not doing enough? Silly eh? I have had a tough few weeks and that is why I haven’t been on here much. But I read it all often. Last night I woke up thinking why have I got a bandage on my foot? No bandage!! Should have known then. Then I kept waking up cos the pain and heaviness in my leg was stopping me turning over. So I have stayed in bed this morning not really wanting to test the leg. Seems something has happened over night. I can hardly lift my leg or put weight on it. Hope it soon gets better…maybe this is another phase starting…damn it!! Keep as well as you all can be… Anne x
l have been competing in the MS Olympics for 34yrs. And the weight of all those Gold Medals is weighing me down.
Much admiration for those athletes
I’m right behind you on that one. To have any disability can clearly be overcome to some degree, with determination, support etc. - but MS is a mean little critter and will knock you back when you try to fight it. I get out of bed every day and make myself stand - but wth cheats, some days I don’t get dressed
