    Hello everyone, I my name is Margaret I was diagnosed with MND just before Christmas 2019 I had been noticing different things like a dropped foot, and I fell over a few times before I went to my GP who referred me to a falls clinic. They gave me exercises to do but I started to trip up quite a bit after one of these falls I was given some tests Since then my arms and legs have become weaker. I can’t even write, I used to enjoy knitting, making cards and various other little things to pass my days away. Anyway I look forward to hearing from you on this forum xx

            Welcome to the forum, Margaret. Hopefully with a diagnosis in 2019 you have come to terms with it a little by now. Lots of friendly helpful and humourous folk here.

                Lovely to meet you Margaret - sorry it's under such circumstances though...

                My mum also loves her knitting and crafts, talents which I definetly didn't inherit 😥, and I know how much they mean to her, so I'm desperately sorry your hands are losing some dexterity and function.

                Anyway, a warm welcome to the Forum and hope we get to know more about you.

                Take care.

                Love Ellie.

                      Hi Margaret, sorry that you had to give up your crafts. I had to the same as well as give up hill walking. I sold two knitting machines, both electronic and excellent condition. I used to knit socks too with 5 needles. Sad to loose all that. But I’ve made up for it with the hundreds of books that I’ve read (approx 150 since lockdown started). I’m looking forward to us chatting, love Lynne x
