MS takes so much away from your life, no more competetive sports, no more socialising in busy pubs,difficulties building a network of new friends as you dont work and spend much of your time asleep or sitting in a chair becoming more and more isolated.
Well heres something nearly all of us can do that gives back a lot of the above.
Pub poker !! I can honestly say its virtually saved my life.
Here are the benefits.
Virtually drive from door to door
Hardly any standing around
Meet new people
Learn and compete
Opportunities of competing and earning money virtually anywhere in the world.
People tend not to be intrusive into personal circumstances as they’re there for the poker but at the same time its easy to make friends.
It gets me out 3 or 4 nights a week at a cost of a fiver a time. Very easy after a short period of time to break even or even make a profit. Sometimes I see wheelchair users playing but its not often and I wonder why. The game is absolutely ideal for disabled people. Now and again you get stairs and stuff but if im playing at such a venue Ill get there early when its quiet so no one sees me struggling. Also, women are under represented in the game but the ones that do play usually get to be pretty good players !!
Get on it people, if your looking to get some of your previous life back !!
