Hopefully I will be able to send this reply, as yesterday the page was bouncing up and down like a yo-yo everyime I tried to hit the send button.
Okay, I`ve come back with what I hope will be useful to Reikiblossom and anyone else, who finds themselves at the scary crossroads of severe moblity poblems versus shall I use a mobility aid? That could be a walking stick, a rollator, a wheelchair or a scooter?
I have been there with all those things.
When we find ourselves facing a milestone in our MS or other progressive illnesses journey, there are things we see as negative, when really they are positive things, ie they will help keep us safe, enablng us to join in with the world outside our homes, and not make us confined to 4 walls. We sometmes find it hard to see the wood for the tree, as they say!
We can become to concernd with what others may think of us if they see us in a wheelchair, or using a rolaltor. Yes, they my be surprised or even shocked at the sight. But if you asked them if they would rather see you hurt after a fall, or miserable because you feel a prisoner in your own home. Truly, not one of them would!
So now dear friends, find the courage I am sending you to do whatever it s that will enhance your lives.
