🧡 Day 4 of MS Awareness Week 🧡.
It was lovely to get so many questions yesterday; the most frequent one was how long was it before hubs had to use a ♿? This is totally understandable as its the first question he googled when he first got diagnosed!
If you are newly diagnosed, please don't panic! The truth is, the majority of people with MS will not need a wheelchair or even a walking aid. .
For hubs though, his mobility really reduced after the major relapse that I shared yesterday. It was around 8 or 9 years after being diagnosed. We knew he wasn't safe on crutches the day we went to a hospital appointment in torrential rain and howling wind. Crossing a muddy path, I was holding on to him for dear life, then I thought to myself, "wait a minute mate, you're on your own here, I'm not getting covered in mud too" 🙈😂. 2 kind burly builders help us in.. we sat there in the waiting area and just burst out laughing! Thankfully the only thing that hurt was his pride. .
It took a few more months (and our wedding day!) for hubs to eventually use the ♿ in front of our friends and family but that's for another story! Although he accepts he needs to use it, I'm not sure if he will ever fully accept it and he lives in hope that one day his balance will return. .
So hence the reason for our little bungalow which we absolutely love. It's taken a long time and lots of mistakes to get it how we want it; accessible not "disabled". I've found so much inspiration on here and there are some fab accounts that show off inclusive design. Check out #inclusivechic
