J, My heart goes out to you - everytime l read your posts. You have such a burden on your shoulders with your family as well as your MS.
l wish l was a ‘Cape Crusader’ - well l expect most of us would like to be one also - and sweep into your life and sort out your family.
You are such a caring person - and l know would be the first to help others if only you could. Thats why we all try to keep one anothers peckers up!!
l was out on my Tramper scooter - with my dogs a couple of days ago - and the scooter broke down. l hate not being able to get out and about on my own. And the dogs were going stir-crazy. A lovely neighbour had a look at it for me and discovered a part that had broken connecting the batteries together. He kindly rang Beamer the Tramper company and got them to send me a replacement. lt came this morning as promised. And he came over and fixed it for me. Then this afternoon - the service guy from Beamer turned up out of the blue. Apparently, he was up at the NEC for the weekend - at some exhibition with his wife [also disabled and uses a Tramper] and came to see if he could fix the scooter. He has been here for about 2 hrs - and has stripped it down and given it a good service. Brought his 3 dogs with him as well. lt was due a service - so now l am back on my wheels again and not feeling so ‘trapped’. We live in Worcs - and the Beamer company are in Salisbury. The service guy lives in Basingstoke - so how about that for a piece of good fortune. Will be out with my beasties as soon as it cools down a bit for them. Got my son’s two dogs to look after next week - so shall have 5 to take out!
Hope you are feeling more upbeat now - especially after the replies you have had from your pals on here.
lt must help to know that we understand what you are going through - and are always close at hand to answer you.
l have been much better since starting on the Biotin - and also a B Complex recommended to me called Swansons Super Stress B-Complex with Vit C. [Trying to get my daughter to start taking it - she has a very stressful job - and gets a terrible dermatitis itchy rash on her hands and arms when she is ‘in a state’. Sure this would help her.] l take no prescription drugs now - just the B Vits and Vitd3. And Kalms - to help me sleep.
You are a kind loving and caring person - time to use it on yourself - and not waste it on others.
