Well I've finally done in, I handed my notice in, am taking early retirement at 58. I was diagnosed with Ataxia about 12 years ago. I had 2 boys and didn't work till 40 odd so have worked 18 years and I'm tired. I know from posts on here a lot of you are still working and I wish you well but my partner and I are both leaving and are going to spend whatever time we've got left together. No more getting up in the morning 2 hours before work just to feel ok, to give me chance not to feel as wobbly. No more going to bed early to feel ok for work the next day. No more fitting visiting my mum round holidays from work. No more stumbling and walking into walls and the photocopier.
Just as an after thought do any of you have advice on the bath/shower situation? I can no longer use the shower and have problems getting out of the bath. I can in with one leg but have trouble getting the other leg in. Once in I have problems getting out. I've just tried the suction bath grips.....not for me. Anyone use a bath board? Any good? Let me know. Best wishes to all.
