My Story 0 Appreciate this

I have had ms for 35 years. I have a very positive attitude. I have gone thru many stages. I was in a wheelchair for 4 years then got myself motivated and used a walker, then just a cane and then nothing for years. I married my husband in 1991 and was married for almost 19 years when I lost him to cancer. I then developed arthritis in my knee and after surgery never really got back to where I was. I used a cane and then got comfortable with a walker when I'm alone. I do not let anything stop me from trying new things. At 57, I just went ziplining and had the a ball. I would like to connect with other people in my situation. It does get very lonely.
