maria1 replied to discussion RE:I have lived with M.S. for a very very long time. Secondary Progressive now. I also have seizures besides being wheelchair bound when out of the house. I posted a comment in the chat room but no one is there. I have thought to join some type of online friendship some how and where is every one. I live in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. It's a cold, lonely world here. I lost both my parents to cancer 3 mnths apart last yr. Is anyone there?

Hi Nature-lover, and welcome. I usually am active on the discussion page instead of the groups. To me the groups are segregated. Sorry to hear of your loss, it must be odd for you to adapt to a double loss in such a short period of time. I too have spms but can walk but do not travel at all, that for me is debilitating. I am on a farm in Missouri, have been for 20 yrs. Most of the people here are not chatty - we tried to set up a chat room but nobody came. So we just respond on the discussions that appear. Also this site has had some glitches that make it difficult for some so it may seem quiet to you, but it is also the holiday season and plenty of people are busy. If you check out the discussion page  and the activity feed you will see what others are saying. maria

I think you stumbled on something I discovered years ago -- don't push yourself too much.In my late 20s I spent a week effectively not being able to walk. Last summer was the same sort of thing, but to the point I had to use a wheelchair.Since then I've recovered a great deal, and now walk and occasionally use "Canadian crutches" mainly for balance.What has been reinforced for me in my ongoing recovery phase is something I intuitively learned decades ago: Don't force myself to do too much.Mentally I can force myself to do all sorts of things, but overtaxing myself will create a "punishment" of days of symptoms and issues after overtaxing myself. Thus, I do what I want, when I feel up to doing it. And if my body tells me "You've walked enough" I pay attention to what it's saying.My thoughts are you should adopt something similar and see if it works for you.
