        ive arrived here with 5 suitcases and my husband. i feel like a refuge.

        i would like to point out that i have left behind a lot of stuff but i have found some wonderful people here. i have had contact with Tracey an mnd nurse at the local hospital and jo campbell local mnd support group and an email from the local st lukes hospice. i have never felt so supported and such friendship in such a short time.

        i regret leaving my house and all my things but this means so much more. thank you everyone.

            Hi LindaB. As my mobility is almost gone I can wear some shoes in wheelchair .
            However I get days when feet swell up due to immobility and heat.
            Got a wedding to go to soon so on with huge heels at least for part of the day unless feet are swollen.In tat case it’s back to flat, wider shoes.

            To Denise .....it’s fantastic you and your husband are linked to the hospice etc.Really pleased you have some support

            To Doug,Hope it feels good to help others by donating your shoes.I too cleared clothes and took to charity/shops.I lost weight and it was good to give some clothes to friends and charity shops.
            Best wishes
            Mary x

              My right foot drops so to try to minimise falling over I have a foot/ankle support best worn with trainers.
              I would try heels for an event...Mary I'm with you on that....even for part of the day...go girl rock those heelsπŸ‘

                    Doug Carpenter Can't have you in Old Man Slippers, can we - maybe a nice pair of Vans.

                    I remember giving away boxes of stuff and what I now wear, I wouldn't have be seen dead in before - now what I wear has just one remit; practicality... xx

                              It's really nice to have lovely shoes. Some really not sensible but just had to have them.

                              I am terrible at getting rid of old comfy slippers, trainers and boots. They look bad but so comfy.

                              But having bare feet is really nice. I think my feet suffer from claustrophobia. 🀣
