Since my diagnosis I have learned so much about MS and how people come to live with the progression of symptoms. I thought I would share some useful and interesting material here. I hope you find these links interesting and useful.
My friend Connie has written a wonderful piece about assistive devices on her blog. Like the interview with Marcia Hirst below, it really helps identify and illustrate the uses of “machinery” that can make life easier for people with MS and other crippling diseases. Here’s the link to Connie’s article: http://javabird.com/blog/2012/06/30/multiple-sclerosis-no-whining-im-grateful/
Patient Power interview with Marcia Hirst. Notice her extensive use of assistive devices. When I began to discover that I needed these devices I got lots of information about them from online conversations with other people with MS. http://www.patientpower.info/video/marcia-hirst-don-t-let-multiple-sclerosis-take-the-joy-out-of-your-life?autoplay=1
