Hello,
Ouch...but a good ouch...I decided I was going to try polarity yoga tonight...I was scared to death to have a spasm..but I took the hour and a half class and had to motify many moves...I had a chair to use when I couldn't stand up and when the class twisted and bended I just stayed flat on the floor and stretched...I know that the people in the class knew that I was different...but no one said anything to me...I kind of wished that they had...the teacher knew and was wonderful...she said that seeing me adjust and try, etc., was uplifting for her...On the way home I cried like a baby for the first time since my dx five years ago..I cried for the body that I lost...I am and have to continue to adapt and make peace with the new body that I have and will have...then I went to McDonald's for an asian salad and sitting right inside the door was a man and his wife...beautiful young woman all bent over in a motorized chair...she had severe MS and was talking to her husband using a pencil in her mouth to hit a keypad so the words would come up on a little computer screen on the front of her chair...a message...obviously...I then got my salad and felt uplifted that I could at least standup and walk out the door and drive home...breathe...Susan
