Despite being semi-young, (sorta almost semi young), the disability makes me feel 90 years old sometimes.
Because I can’t walk without canes or a walker, every step puts pressure on my wrists. Because I’m right handed, most of the pressure goes there, and I’m susceptible to sprains.
So I have to wear a wrist brace for extra support.
It helps protect against sprains, but the downside is that it leaves my wrist/arm red and raw, sometimes bruised.
Ghh.

I can’t remember the name of your malady, but I remember your having said that it would have been treatable had you been diagnosed younger. Perhaps there have been strides made and new treatment options developed?

A friend of mine has a rather rare type of aggressive cancer and has a doctor in NYC who developed treatment methods outside of the “usual protocol” which has extended not only her life, but the quality of it. As such, I wonder if there have been strides made in treating the condition which is impacting you. Even arresting the progression would be something worth researching.

Nothing.
I’m pretty much stuck this way.
Next doctor appointment is in April; maybe they’ll have a miracle cure by then.
Lol.

I don’t mind helping you research. You can email me, too, if you want to discuss it more privately.

So I guess those sweet handicapped parking spaces come at a steep price.
You’d think we’d have wheelchair hover crafts by now, but sadly we don’t.
Best wishes.

Wheelchair hovercrafts would be *AWESOME*.
