Dear Editor - Fanmail
Just a short note to say thank you soooo much for your latest magazine, which you very kindly send me. I have MS and I can't tell you what a lift it gives me.
You cover so many interesting things and best of all you are just so positive and most of all it makes one realise that there ARE people out there who care and are striving to help us in any way possible. The idea of writing down one good thing that happens each day is brilliant, can't we do it for longer and can we maybe write more than one thing for each day. Yesterday was great as I was taken by my long-suffering caretaker/partner shopping.
I have just got a new zootie wheelchair and I felt just like a real person, could go where I wanted and see what I wanted, all by myself, who would ever have thought I would love going to a supermarket, what an absolute treat.
Also loved the pamphlet on bathrooms. I often look at disabled "help" items and boy, are they usually ugly and wouldn't fit in any house, BUT now I can see that we do have a choice, whoopee!
Also having read the article on that guy who got a car, now I am going to look into having my new wheelchair customized, pink or something. Why are all things that help us so boring, surely a bit of fun and colour would not only cheer us, the user, and maybe ever be a good icebreaker!
Keep up the good work, you guys are JUST amazing and more.
Love and hugs
