Scooter versus wheelchair
I used to love running and as a parent I would think nothing of taking my kids on long walks. After a few miles they stop moaning! When I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis nearly twenty years ago I was still able to walk. I was told off for running when I was in for diagnosis by a staff nurse at Brook Hospital, she said I need to use my energy wisely and running would wear me out, she said stay fit but don't exhaust yourself. I spose it was about the best advice they could give, you find how you are going to react to exertion by doing stuff, I now know that I need to rest up after a trip out. I needed a couple of days recovering from my recent trip to the beach (I was asleep virtually 36 hours) So I got to thinking about wheelchair v scooter.
