Multiple Sclerosis Has Made Me a One-Armed Man
Time to Improvise, Again
I’ve found that bags with long straps I can hoist over my shoulder (and sometimes use as a sling for that left limb) can help me carry a few things when I really need to. They can’t be too heavy, though, as the left leg is also weak, and the delicate balancing act that can be walking with MS is easily upset.
Perhaps it’s time to consider a rollator for walking when I need to carry something, as many of them have baskets (as well as a handy seat if one gets tired while walking). The old folding walker that I use when needed doesn’t have such modern conveniences. Besides, the old thing is pretty ugly and makes me feel even more disabled than I am.
