Yesterday I had to hand the car back, I had extended the contract for 6 mth and had a couple of months left.
In March I had a UTI that got into my blood and kidneys.
After a couple of days in hospital and some high strength intravenous anti biotics I came home but it had left me further down that slippery slope of disability.
The hospital actualy phoned me a couple of days after coming out to see how I was, they told me it would be quite a while recovering.
To cut to the chase I am now unable to transfer and am considerably more immobile and to top it all I am having trouble with my left arm and shoulder.
Actualy it was good news when I went to the doc, it is a frozen shoulder which can be treated, I thought it was the MS that was taking it although the effect is the same, I have very limited mobility in it.
So being as I am on hand controls I won’t be able to drive for between 6 and 24 mths which will serverly curtail my independence.
Now I’m 61 and have been driving and tinkering with cars since I was 16 as an apprentice mechanic, so thats 45 yrs, I had an HGV and over the past decade it has slowly diminished to just an automatic saloon.
Ahhhhh this MS could get you down.
Right I’ve had a good winge now feel much better now.
