      matthew55 - it is very strange having another man do up your bra when you are married and have been for over 20 years...
      Diagnosis confirmed Jan 2022 (age 46) after several years ignored/ misdiagnosed.

      Symptoms began in left foot 2017. Now mainly left side, speech and some loss on right side too.

      Unable to walk unaided (powerchair user), poor speech, left hand behaves like a drunk toddler but generally positive and determined.

        In the hospice, I'm often showered and dressed by male carers - odd at first but, hey ho, I'd rather not stay in the same PJs for 2 weeks. 😏🙂😘

        Eye gaze user - No functional limbs - No speech - Feeding tube - Overnight NIV.

            Ellie - still just about independently washing and dressing. But my physio does my bra after my sports massage. Was very unnerving the first time, but I'm sure I will get used to all these things.

              I can't offer much to the discussion, but it brings back happy memories of how I mastered undoing a bra with one hand in my younger days
              Hi, I'm Eddie.
              Started with wobbly left ankle in Nov 2020. Diagnosed 22 Oct 2021, confirmed by 2nd opinion 4 days later.
              Still walking and talking, and wondering what the future will bring.

                Reminds me about the wonder bra. Once you have removed it you wonder where the breasts had gone! 😉🤔😂😂xx
                Bulbar started Jan 2020. Mute and 100% tube fed but mobile and undefeated. Stay Strong 🤗😘🤗😁xx

                    Agreed...but those with three hooks and eyes were a bit tricky sometimes!
