    Ricky you are not just your wife’s carer, you are the captain of the whole team of supporters. I always said to my wife together we will face whatever comes.

    Ricky135 - that is so good to hear. I'm finding more challenges and some things, like kayaking and hiking are long gone... but amazing how many things we can still enjoy. There are always new things to discover too x

    Ricky135 That is a great attitude to have.
    We made the best of this first year after diagnosis with 3 foreign holidays.
    We are having to wind things down now as my walking ability has just about disappeared, but we are planning some UK touring in the WAV.
    Stay positive!

    Definitely the best way to deal with it if you can, do as much as possible that you like/want to do. And be prepared to adapt so you can still get to do things.

    I used to love hiking in the countryside and am a bird watching fanatic😄 Can't do the hiking now, but can use a mobility scooter for accessible 'walks', or hubby can push my wheelchair. And all the big RSPB and wildfowl trust reserves have good disabled access and great bird watching hides, so I don't miss out there at all🙂

    Enjoying life as much as possible asap after diagnosis is an important message. By the time we got over the shock of my diagnosis of this insidious disease we were into the first lockdown which screwed up holiday plans and made us realise we should have done a lot of stuff earlier.

    Thanks Ellie love
    she had a fall when we was on a day out at the weekend. She didn’t hurt herself much but the emotions was so heartbreaking.
