What has made your life easier? Meds, transfers, groups, vehicles… I’d like to know about it!
I often say that I would have been so lost if my life had occurred ten years earlier. When Katie was diagnosed, I was just getting the hang of the internet. Finding people with similar conditions, talking with parents, and finding a variety of information that would have been almost impossible to access prior to this medium… well, I think it probably saved my life.
That said, I also have learned about and tried any number of things that didn’t help us one whit. Vitamins. Hippotherapy. Craniosacral therapy. Hyperbaric therapy. And on, and on. I do know families that have had gains from each of those treatments, and I’m not saying they’re without value, but in our case, they were mostly just expensive, time consuming and tortuous.
So, what has worked for you? What do you swear by? What hasn’t worked? I would love to hear about your experiences.
