Re: Coping with MD?


Welcome to the board. Feel free to visit and post often! Congratulations on your accomplishments. I am very impressed. I am a 49 year old male with MD. I feel very fortunate that I can still walk (barely). After reading your post and your situation I feel I have no right to complain about anything.

To answer your question, my biggest fear and frustration is being a burden to my family. I don't mind so much giving up fun stuff like sports, hiking and the like, but my wish is just to be able to take care of myself without others having to sacrifice.

I've posted to this board hundreds of times. Feel free to read my other posts and you'll get to "know" me a bit.

Hope to hear more from you.
