Sadly for me my Secondary Progressive MS is starting to get worse again, it is heart-breaking for me having to use my ceiling hoists more often. I’m starting to have real problems getting out of bed using my standing aid to transfer to my wheelchair. I’m lying on my bed trying to bend my left leg, a lot of the time it won’t so having to try using my right leg to force the left leg to move. This makes it unsafe but I try my best. The MS is starting to catch up with me and there is very little I can do to change that, there’s little affordable physiotherapy. When I get onto the wheelchair I’m never straight and then I have to use another type of standing aid to straighten my body. This is hard but I keep on going. I say goodbye to everybody on the buses I travel when getting off, but I’m really crying inside.

Thank you for reading this blog.
