Just got back from a fantastic day out at Alton Towers with my 12yr old twin boys and found it really difficult to walk around most of the time even with my trusty stick. I had to keep stopping for a rest and just pretend i was admiring the scenery. I was diagnosed just over 2 years ago and this was the first time i really struggled to walk infront of my children, i felt so sorry for them to see their super hero dad stuggle like that and kept thinking im ruining their day.
One of my boys kept holding my hand and asking if i was ok, bless him. They are aware of my MS, but that was the first time it hit me that my illness is slowly crippling me and to see my boys looking at me that way broke my heart.
We all had a fantastic day though … even though i still had to pay £6 to park on top of the £123 for the 3 of us to get in !
