I have so many different frustrations that my wife just informed me that I need to be more positive!
There is a short list:
- Dropping almost anything, and then getting down on all fours to pick whatever it was up… I now have a Reacher tool that I can use, but I seldom have it when I actually need it!
- Eye strain: I am typing this blog, my left eye is following my typing, my right eye is developing an ache around the eye socket which means eye strain.
- Typing on my cell phone: I use my right thumb to type, if I spell a word wrong and backspace, I often mmm or lll and then need to take those off! My focus is not on the whole phone, but on the text line, and when I misspell, I focus on backspace, and then look back at the text line to see 3 or 4 m’s. Groan! Because of this, I usually do not write big emails or texts on my phone!
- I also feel like a boat on water… I can sway, bump and ebb like a water current is around me. I am never able to be still; sitting or standing!
I need a positive release! Red wine is good, but not helpful to my ataxia!
