Re: How is everyone?

Hi all I have been struggling with this disease since 2004 and the tremors have now progressed to basically no standing time or a few seconds on a good day. Some times I even find it hard to get up from a chair and get going as the tremors seem to kick in so quickly. At home I can move from chair to...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Betty So sorry to hear of all your troubles. I do from time to time get a low grade fever and chills but usually in the evening.

Re: How is everyone?

Hi all I too love to garden and find it more of a challenge each year. We have huge perennial borders with some winding walkways through them. This enables me to use my little wheeled garden cart to get in and tend to the flowers and shrubs. My husband does help in the areas I find hard to reach. I ...

Re: New to the forum? post a quick introduction

Hi Marlana Glad to be of help. You described the feeling of freedom so well. It is so nice to be relaxed and enjoy yourself. I shall probably look into getting a lighter and more compact wheelchair myself sometime although I am a fairly big person. This was just my first foray into wheelchairs and I...

Re: New to the forum? post a quick introduction

Hi Betty Nice to hear from you. So sorry to hear that you tire so easily now from doing simple tasks and exercising has become much more difficult. I too tend to get really tired if I push it too hard. I have been working out with a trainer the last few months at our local gym and she has been start...
