The internet has been my savior with this disease.
I've been out of work and on SSDI since Jan 2008 as my feet and ankles are paralysed and at first it drove me batty not to go to work and be with my co workers or go to the gym at nite or bowling on Sat nite and going to football games etc. as i miss just being normal again when i had my feet.
The internet allows me to read forums like this one here along with other neural diseases to constantly learn and research etc. I can read news papers (50 states.com) from any city, i read all my science magazines online, i listen to internet radio stations i.e. classic rock 70's and 80's , i can listen to talk radio, i can watch tons of free movies on different sites, i read wikipedia all the time mostly about American history my passion) i can even shop online for groceries, clothes, furniture etc. i.e. Amazon, Overstock and Schwans home delivery, i can play Chess, Checkers, Pac Man, Space Invaders and other games sites on the net.
So until i'm cured to where i can go back to work and socialise and not need SSDI anymore the internet is my best friend and can sure help those of us who are housebound with these different neural diseases.
Any other questions just ask
