At the start of October, I was full time in work, walking, albeit badly, with two sticks. (I have PPMS). Now, for one reason or another, I am full time in a wheelchair and have had to finish my job. I’m still in my early forties and was very active and sociable.
I certainly notice a drop in self esteem, from being valued and able to contribute, to feeling that my knowledge and experience is going to waste. My dear wife is looking after me full time while she is on sabbatical, but she will need a break some time soon and we don’t know what to. Has anyone used respite care, and what were your experiences?
