I have had MS for 16+years. I am ok but I certainly can’t walk and talk, one or the other if you want a reply. I go to a MS physio group every week. The same people have turned up for years. The great thing is that they are people that understand and between us we have had the smorgasbord of available treatments in the UK mostly through our fantastic centre in London. The mental support is as beneficial as the exercise. We can have fun with each other in a way that we would find offensive from non-strickened folk. Any treatment questions ? Somebody will have had it and can help prepare you.
For me they are my very personal resource of friends who understand. We do say trite things to each other like ‘ keep going’ but behind that phrase we acknowledge the effort required.
