What is your relationship status? Who do you live with? I am very single and share an apartment with my dad and his girlfriend.
What's a typical day for you? I don't have many typical days. I have a physical therapist visit twice a week, and volunteer at the local hospital, so it all depends on the day.
Are there any others with FA in your family? I am the only member of my family "lucky enough" to have FA.
Describe your transition from walking to walker/wheelchai: I was able to walk (shakily) through high school. After graduation, I had my spinal fusion operation, which slowed me down a little. Over the past 12 years, I have made the transition from occasionally standing to full-time wheelchair user.
What do you like to do to stay active and what type of exercises work for you to stay strong? To stay active I go to the gym at my apartment and lift weights sometimes, I am not a gym rat by any means, but those few exercises help my upper body strength. My physical therapist focuses mostly on my legs and core with stretching and low-impact work.
