Today is World MS Day. Today we help spread awareness for this disease & recognize all the MS Researchers who work tirelessly to help find a cure. For me personally, today is also the day when I’d like to acknowledge good friends. It’s the special people who cross your path along this journey- friends who make a difference so that coping with this disease is made a little easier, friends like

Yes, my life is full of luxuries! I’ve never used a pressure regulating mattress before BUTT It is pure bliss for my wheelchair arse ♿️🍊which is not feeling very peachy at the moment.
Another luxury I experience is when I go to the operating theatre at another hospital, one nurse let’s my hair hang out below the theatre cap! 😂 & that really makes things better.
I’m so spoilt- I know I’ll make you all green with envy 🤢

Playing human Guinea Pig for medical research 🐹 No animal was harmed in this experiment, maybe just a little embarrassed while the nostrils slowly drip despite the nose peg clamping the nose like the jaws of death 😩🤣
The study is to use Electronic Stimulation on the leg muscles while arm cranking to increase aerobic activity. The data so far is very promising & I am super hungry after each session so my body is working hard 💪🏼♿️

I look tired & unimpressed here because I am! This came after a night of no sleep followed by Valium at 3am. It already took me 10 minutes to get that Thera putty into the pancake shape so I was definitely tired & cranky 😩but yippeeee...I eventually cut that ANNOYING- FLURO ORANGE- IN YOUR FACE- FAKE STEAK!🥩

This is Tony one of the many awesome friends I made at rehab. Tony has a spinal cord injury and has spent six months here & he is actually now managing learning to walk 🙌🏼It’s been a long hard road for him. Tony and his mate (I nicknamed them ‘double trouble’) race around the grounds here at a million miles an hour 💨♿️ I have met so many people here each with their individual stories to tell. Connecting with each of them has definitely been the highlight of my stay which I will treasure always. 🙏🏻♿️

Balance practice in Neuro Clinic. It’s been fascinating learning the key to neuroplasticity here at Rehab. 10 minutes & about 200 reps regularly to lay the neural pathways. I don’t get much opp for balancing in the ♿️ so it is quite difficult to sit without holding on but my skills are improving. The core strength is affected in PPMS along with hand function so there’s lots to work on.

I’ve been desperately trying to hold on to my standing transfers for a while now but as @coachnickharris says I need to transfer as safely as possible & keep the legs strong by exercising at other times. I’m learning some great new ♿️ skills here at rehab & safe transfers too! It may look easy but it’s SCARY!

I’m spending a few weeks of intensive therapy here in Rehab. My standing transfers have turned to crap recently so my goal is to recover some function with intensive strengthening along with learning some new techniques. The staff here are amazing & the knowledge of the Physio’s & OT’s has blown me away. I am receiving the best possible care and therapy. I am also able to keep up my FES as you can see in this mornings session as I’m missing my weekly sessions at Sydney Uni.

It’s great to be back in the kitchen & finally able to reach the food in my fridge. Cutting & chopping isn’t on my agenda but a fried egg 🍳 on toast is at the top of my repertoire! I can now even reach a light switch & this Powerchair is so small I can even fit into our pantry. It’s the first one of its kind in Australia & it also fits through any regular doorway!🌪. @quickiewheels

It’s great to be back to some normality. Holidays are not easy especially when eating & drinking and sitting around doesn’t suit your needs of staying as active as possible. ♿️ Thank goodness for the @cpalliance accessible gym- they warmly welcome all disabilities to their establishment. @iamadaptive @yoocandoanything 💪🏼
