Hey guys and Gals this is my first post on this forum sio I am not quite sure what to expect.
I was recently diagnosed with PPMS which wasn’t too much of a shock really as I alwayts new something was wrong. I have always been slightly unsteady on my feet and had very shaky hands.
After reading more about MS I thought back to my life and rea,lised that I have had a few of the conditions associated with MS and not realised what they were I’ve always hated walking and got tired very quickly I have alsohad other complaints related to MS and just thought they were something else.
A few years ago a specilist thought I was dyspraxic then a different specialist said it was ataxia and then that progressed into PPMS.
I have been unemployed for about 6 years now and am struggling to find work. I have been keeping myself busy with volunteering with special needs children and more recently a local blind group.
I try to keep from feeling down as I see people with a lot worse cionditions just getting one with things and not letting it bother them so Itry to take the same attitude.
I am also very grateful of the help that is out there for people with MS nd also that it will helpme get my own place as I really hate living here and am really starting to struggle wuith the stairs and all the steps here.
I am slightly worried though that I will end up needing a wheelchair permenantally and am also worried about how it will affect the career path I have chosen to re-train for and that is woirking with children
