Good Morning, Everyone,
I guess I want to share a situation that happened on Sunday and see if it’s common in other people (is it an Ataxia thing?), how do you guys deal with it, and is there a way you all have found to prevent it.
So, on Sunday, I went to the beach with my husband, sister-in-law, and her boyfriend. Our plan was just to hang out on the beach/in the ocean for an hour or two…nothing extreme. However, we only lasted about a half hour. I couldn’t walk in a straight line. My husband essentially had to drag me back out to the parking lot; he pulled the car around to pick me up because walking the whole 100 feet to the car would just be too much I was mortified. I looked blackout drunk in the way that I was stumbling, slurring all of my words, etc.
My husband and I have a trip to Disney World planned for the end of September. He was understandably frustrated about the whole day and said he has no idea how we’re going to go to Disney together if this could happen again, especially when I experience no warning signs that this is going to happen.
Is this weird “flare” an Ataxia thing? How do you all cope with it? Are there any warning signs that it’s going to happen?
Thanks in advance!
