She needs a scooter or wheel chair and her house needs to be ADA. The more you don't try the more you loose I know I have SPS...what do her doctors tell her? You are a good mom but your husband needs you too....is she married? does she have insurance? There is alot of assistance out there for disable folks...

My heart goes out to you. My 26 yr old daughter-in-law was diagnosed in December 2012. In 2011 I moved from the midwest to CA to be close to him so I could be there when he needed me. They were relocated last summer 11 hrs away. I can't quit my job and I'm soon to be married. I want to help but can't. After seeing her in repeated spasms and pain, I feel so helpless. My son is unable to work and they have a new baby. When I try to explain to my co-workers, friends and wife soon to be, no one understands how serious this is and how it already and will continue to affect every having a normal life. I'm at a loss of what to do....I wish you the best with your daughter.
