Mar 15, 2018 · Time to give up? in Neuropathy

I will leave this site today . At 59, as I watch my legs and hands disappear, I am retreating to my photography, few friends and meds. I have found that tramadol let's me lift my legs and klonopi n helps them both smoothly on a good day. I know I will be in a wheelchair 65 to 68. This is death . I will find what not I can til then. This site searches for solutions that do not exist. Goodbye Mayo.

I just read this post again today. How grateful I am for this site when I get to it. Your posting in particular was very kind and had a little bit of the "Snap out of it!" moment that is instructive. I have been doing the battle of acceptance vs giving up for too long ( according to friends,lucky) and I take it seriously. I am learning too slowly! The measure of our value is not ten,twenty plus years ago. It is today. Today someone helped me, more importantly I managed to help someone else. Grateful to hear your voice.

Blindsided by Richard Cohen changed my life in a profound way, i.e. Shame. He let me claim my new life with a cane at 58 as mine to own. It was shocking how similar the symptoms are between multiple sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy. I will read anything he writes.

I do not either. At the same time it was a "miracle" of sorts to find this group. Yes,the cane,the pain, the depression – all still here. But there are voices with the same with suggestions,maybe a joke or squirrel pic, to lighten the day. Thinking of you.

I will look into him and purchase his book. I try to stay open to any new ideas which may help. This illness is a monster, but we humans are pretty clever at dealing with it. I have learned that from the people on this website. Just wish I didn't dream I am my physical self of ten years ago.
