How far

Hi

I've reach my 22 year with LM2. I've had a dip in my bodily functions where walking is sill something I can do but the fear of falling is so overwhelming that I rather use my wheelchair

I have certain places e.g. my bathroom that I use railings to get myself up

All of a sudden my arms doesn't have the strength it use to and I'm struggling

How far does MD rip your muscles apart and what level of disability am I going to reach?

Goggling websites is no use

Re: How far

I ask myself the same questions. Since I don't have a confirmed diagnosis, I can't look up a specific disease to get any ideas.

I am in the same boat, watching my capabilities slowly deterioriate.

My newest challenge is parting my hair every morning. My arm is too weak to do it like I was doing even a week ago. It's taking all my skill and acrobatic twisting to get it done.

I feel for you. I really do.
