I’m in need of some advice or recommendations from any of you. I am willing to try anything at the moment!
My hubby has booked tickets for the Formula-E racing at Battersea park in a few weeks time. When he booked, he thought there was seating, as I said to him I didn’t want to stand for the day, and thought I’d find it difficult. We have since found out that the viewing areas are standing areas, and you are not allowed to use fold up chairs in the viewing areas. Now, my problem is that I am going to get really tired, really quickly. I tend to get a cripling lower backache (unsure if MS related, although when I look at the wear on my shoes I must walk ‘differently’ on one foot as the wear on that shoe is different to the other) if I stand for more than 20-30 minutes. Even if I take painkillers 30mins before I know I’m going to be on my feet for a while, the pain is still quite significant.
I don’t want him to feel guilty for making me go, but equally I am dreading it because I know I am going to be in pain and it is going to be exhausting trying to make it through the day. I have only been recently diagnosed (partly due to me ignoring the symptoms over the last few years or blaming it on my weight and being unfit etc), and the last thing I want is for him to miss out, or feel guilty. Does anyone have any suggestions for making it through the day? I have actually seriously considered getting a wheelchair, but that seems so wrong because normally I am fine… I just don’t know what I can do.
