Progression: A balancing act.

FA is a progressive disease which means it gets worse over time. This makes things especially challenging because there is a constant balancing act between pushing oneself in order to maximize one's physical abilities and giving in to reason and comfort.

For example, I am in a transition period between walking and cruising in my wheelchair. Whenever I leave the house I have to assess the situation and decide whether or not things will be easier with the wheels. I have to consider the terrain I will be in, the time frame of whatever I am doing, the people that will be there, the activities that will take place, how I am feeling at the time etc.

After taking all these things into consideration I place them on either side of a scale. On one side of the scale are all the reasons why things might be easier with the wheels. On the other side of the scale is one thing: The fact that the more comfortable I get in the chair, the more time I will spend there.

Balancing act, yeah my act fails me, but I gotta keep on pushing. When 'safty' is an issue ... (it seems the less I do the less I am able to do.) I just when for a Thanks Giving visit to me Sister's in IN. and didn't do 'much' of anything, you know had fun with her 6 kids and I did ride a stationary recumbent, but no 'real' pushing going on - NOW I'm real stiff and sore (that was only 10 days off!). I'm planning to get back pushing, but I don't think it will be the same. I have this Ataxia thing + I'm not getting any younger work against me.
So I encorage you to be consistant in your NOT using your wheel chair much (for safty reeasons). After all, our trike are kind of are wheels.
just my 2 cents

To be a noble human being is to have a amiable of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an gift to trust uncertain things beyond your own manage, that can front you to be shattered in hugely exceptionally circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly important thither the prerequisite of the righteous compulsion: that it is based on a corporation in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a treasure, something fairly fragile, but whose very precise attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.
