Lunch out, walking the walk !!

Today I went to lunch with my friend Barb. She is one of those people that can always pick you up no matter what kind of mood you are in.

I felt good today so I didn't need too much uplifting. We just both needed a chance to talk.
She has a family and I have a husband who is never in town and both of us never treat ourselves to lunch. 

Mark was in town so he was able to drop me off and then come pick me up. We split lunch so we had some leftovers which we both decided we should give to Mark.
Like I said I am walking pretty good today so I decided to just bring my cane. Asked for help when I needed it ( I couldn't manage the cane, the stairs and the precious box of leftovers for Mark) all at the same time. I was so happy with my progress walking.
As many of you know I gave up ( ok fired) my personal trainer. And physical therapists out here couldn't spell MS let alone know what to do with a person who deals with it. so I decided I would be my own physical therapist and personal trainer.

I have doing alot of research on walking and gait problems and my plan is to walk better.

When I think of how much money I have wasted paying someone it makes me sick.

I am already walking better. Today proved my efforts are working. Im proud of myself and I will keep you updated on my progress.

Have a great day everybody. Storms are coming ourway again for tonight.( surprise surprise)

Hi, Cathy,
Could you share your secret to success? I'd really like to learn how you're doing it. I, too, have discontinued PT and OT, but I want to remain vertical for as long as possible.
