I’ve got secondary progressive MS. Been struggling recently. Signed off work, for the first time ever, for the month of February.
Over er the last few days, my walkingbeen awful. Normally my MS problems are all on the right side, but for the first time ever, the left leg has become a problem.
Went for a lie down around 7pm last night, read a book for 1/2 hour or so, and then couldn’t get up! Eventually managed to sit up, got partly undressed and went to the, en-suite, loo. Just inside the loo the legs stopped working altogether, but the bladder didn’t! Peed all over the floor. Thankfully the wife and kids were in the living room, so didn’t see my accident, nor the tears of anger and frustration that followed.
On the plus side, despite quite a few scares, I didn’t fall yesterday! Woo hoo.
Slept,sort of, in a chair in the bedroom. Took me an hour or so to get showered and dressed today. Took about 10 minutes to shuffle, with crutches, from the bedroom to the kitchen and am now sitting watching the football. If I wasn’t scared sh1tless about this attack, I’d be happy.
On the plus side, The sun is shining, the sky is blue. The birds are pecking at the bird feeder just outside the patio windows.
