OK, I SAW THIS AND SAID, VENT? YOU BET I NEED TO VENT!! I HAVE DONE ALMOST NOTHING BUT CRY FOR WEEKS NOW! I AM IN THE PROGRESSIVE STAGE AND, WHILE MY BRAIN WORKS FINE, MY LEGS DON'T COOPERATE THAT WELL!
 
I HAVE A LARGE MOTORIZED CHAIR THAT LAYS BACK SO THAT, WHEN I'M TIRED I CAN RECLINE. YES, THIS SOUNDS SO NICE DOESN'T IT? WHEN I GOT IT I WAS ASSURED, "SURE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO GET HELP TO BUY A VAN!" WRONG!!!! IT HAS NOW BEEN A YEAR OF BEING HOUSEBOUND!!
 
I LIVE IN AN AREA THAT I CAN'T USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SO THAT IS OUT. I HAVE BEEN TO LITERALLY EVERY AGENCY I CAN THINK OF, MA REHAB, EASTER SEALS, MS SOCIETY. I HAVE WRITTEN LETTERS TO MONTEL, OPRAH, ELLEN AND A FEW OTHERS. THE RESPONSES I RECEIVED VARIED FROM, "YOU'RE TOO OLD, WE ONLY HELP THOSE JUST GETTING OUT OF COLLEGE AND GOING INTO A CAREER." TO, "WE DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE." TO, "WELL, YOU'RE A MINISTER, IF YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE HELPED, WHY DON'T THEY HELP YOU?" (DON'T YOU LOVE THAT ONE?) THEN, OF COURSE, JUST NO RESPONSE AT ALL!! rolleyes
 
I BORROW MY DAD'S CAR FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS A WEEK JUST TO GO SHOPPING BUT THAT IS about IT. EVEN THAT EXHAUSTS ME BECAUSE I HAVE TO WALK. I HAVE, JUST THIS WEEK, GIVEN UP FINDING THE MONEY FOR A VAN AND THOUGHT THAT I WOULD BUY A REGULAR CAR AND A MOTORIZED SCOOTER. I FOUND A USED SCOOTER THAT SOMEONE IS SELLING TO ME ON PAYMENT PLAN. NOW I MUST FIND A CAR!!
PLEASE!! DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY HELP OR IDEAS?  idea   CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW THIS HAS AFFECTED ME!!
WELL, THAT IS MY VENT! SORRY BUT THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY!

Hello Hummingbird:
 
I kinda feel you pain.... I am in same predicament.
 
I know stores in my area have electric carts available....
 
May I suggest calling ahead to ser if one is available?
 
IF you are able to get out of the house, and drive to a supermarket.....you are WAY ahead of many MSer's.
 
Including this one....good luck.
