I’ve come to the realization that I probably need to think about a scooter for long distances. I can walk but then I pay the price. Spasticity flares in my left leg, my feet neuropathy gets bad and of course that whole fatigue thing.
The last trip to the zoo I ended up with eight sides numbness for a week after. Today we went exploring in Opryland Hotel and now I’m hurting.
I think I need one just for long distance days with my toddler. I hate the idea of using one-especially since 10 years ago I trained and did a Susan Komen 3 day Breast Cancer Walk (60 miles in 3 days. This is quite a blow to me but I don’t want to miss out on activities with my son just because I either physically can’t go the distance or I push forward and pay for it afterward.
How do you deal with this blow emotionally?
And any good recommendations for an easily transported scooter? I have a minivan so space is not the issue but making sure I can get it in and out by myself is very important.
Sigh. MS sucks.
