Hi My name is Stuart i live in Glasgow, and i have recently been diagnosed with Cerebellar Atrophy Ataxia, no body in my family seem to have any of the symptoms or Ataxia.
I on here cause I'm really new to this and want to know more especially late onset Ataxia. The problem I'm getting is very bad balance and walking problem, i am also finding day to day life more and more difficult.
I barely drink alcohol about a bottle of red win over 2 days at the weekend but I'm sure my neurologist thinks my condition is caused by alcohol and feels I'm not exactly honest with him about my past and maybe my present lifestyle, is there a test that can prove him wrong I don't know what questions to ask as this has became a shock to myself, i am also frightened that my partner will just get up and leave me because i cant do thing like i used to.
Now for something completely different, I was recently refused a tandem skydive for charity because of my balance and leg strength particular in the landing process, but this is something that on my bucket list and i would really still like to do this, does anyone know of a place that could accommodate my disability in Scotland preferably but I'm willing to travel UK wide.
I would also like to ask if there is a girl called Laura who takes swimming lessons on at Easter-house Glasgow could you please get in touch I would like to chat more about our conditions.
