Many of you can personally relate to the guy walking and falling up in the left corner.
And each of you also wishes there was a magical wizard that would end this nightmare.
NICE THOUGHT, but no matter how long you wish for that wand it you will never receive it.
But you can find a magical wand. You can find your personal magical wand.
Your "magic wand" is somewhere within you but you need help finding where you put it.
To find it you will need to know how to give yourself permission to go looking for it
and you are the only one who can give yourself that permission.
And how do you do that? By giving yourself a reason to use it.
It is your movement ability magic wand.
I am speaking of your natural movement abilities wand you were born with.
Many of you need a kick start to get you moving in the right direction, to provide you with some help in starting the process, to help you understand what is happening to you and to provide you with an understanding of how you can change the bad stuff to some good stuff.
A small kick start is the information on this site.
It's small because the information on this site is only the beginning.
But the book I am currently writing contains the details and explanations of a great deal.
yOU have the ability to RE-LEARN and REGAIN SOME,
or possibly a whole hell of a lot, OF the MOVEMENT ABILITY you once enjoyed.
THE CATCH IS:
YOU HAVE TO PUT THE TIME AND ENERGY INTO MAKING IT HAPPEN.
Can some of you return to normal like movement abilities with your ataxic condition? Yes, many of you can and it is all in the "how".
Here's a big tip.
I found the rock where the "how" information was hiding under.
I have come to understand that:
It doesn't matter why your movement ability is screwed up.
It doesn't matter what the cause of your disability might be or what it is.
It also really doesn't matter why you are clumsy (ataxic).
The only matters that you are. Which means for today the only thing that makes a damn bit of difference is -
What are you going to do about it!
I am one of you. I have Spinocerebellar Atrophy (SCA 14).
I started this site to help people with SCA then people with other disorders asked me if I could also help them.
So I tried and it worked for them too.
The information on this site will work for anyone who has some basic ability to walk. How is that possible you ask?
The answer is as simple as the practical basics of human movement.
They included Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia, Parkinson's Disease, Friedreich's Ataxia, stroke victims, Viral Encephalitis, MS, closed head injuries, "normal" clumsy people...you.
It works for anyone who has the use of their legs with the ability to stand on them.
How? Because the basics are the same for all of us.
A quote from an old movie continues to help me stay focused.
A soldier had become blinded by shrapnel during a battle. On his return home, and readjusting to his new life, he found that everyone treated him as if he couldn’t manage many things by himself anymore. After all, he was blind and therefore...different. His new label changed how everyone else in the community viewed his capabilities. They intuitively knew what was best for him and some viewed him as a burden.
Many continued to instruct him on his limitations, what he couldn’t do anymore and what he ultimately had to accept.
But, he didn’t listen to them very well and continued to tell those who would listen of his dreams and ambitions; even as they continued to dissuade him.
Frustrated by his wrongful dreams, fearing for his safety, and knowing that he was filled with false hopes, his fiancée finally pleaded, “Why do you insist on wanting to do things you know you can’t do?”
He replied, “Because I won’t know what I can’t do until I try!”
Be that soldier! Surprise yourself.
Honestly, those who think they know what you cannot do really don't!
TLC to go!
Some times we fail.
Some times we fail to try?
But we should never
simply give up!
