I guess one could say that my ataxia is relatively mild (so far). In the past two weeks, for example, I managed to travel across the world; go to a ballet (tripping over people in my row but what the hell...); go to the movies; shop in various stores; play with small grandchildren; even take escalators (UP) and people-movers. (Both these latest developments were new to me.) However, when I went to a family party recently, and saw everyone, even my older sister, dance in heels as if w/o a care in the world, I felt like an invalid. I basically sat and smiled in my ridiculous boots. I felt sad and worried and idiotic. I guess I shouldn't complain so much but I do better alone or in a quiet place, these days, I think. What a change for me. Neta
