What's a typical day for you? Parents get me up, help me dress, prepare meals, help with daily needs. I have a personal assistant that takes me to physical therapy. On the days I don't go, I have a workout routine I do at home. I may sit in my hot tub, visit my sister next door, and sit in the sun. I stand up in my stand up chair and listen to music. I watch a little tv, play a little PS-4, an maybe go for a ride with my mom.
How long have you known you are living with FA? About 17 years.
Are there any others with FA in your family? My older sister also has FA. She is 36 and lives next door.
Describe your transition from walking to walker/wheelchair. It was a very hard transition. I started to fall a lot, twisting and hurting my legs and knees. My parents rearranged the furniture so I had furniture to hold on to. They put up bars along the walls to assist me. I fought the wheelchair as long as I could, until I could no longer get around without it. Add a comment
