      Do you think the season or weather impact your mental and physical health?  What kind of changes do you notice from season to season? Did you move to improve your mental or physical health and help improve Living Well While Living With ALS?

      Hi Amanda, yes I definitely know that the cold affects the function of my hands. We have not relocated, but hope to next year, to a warmer climate. I have not noticed other parts of my body being affected by the weather. Spring summer and early fall are good for my attitude and moods, I think.   In addition, mobility on snow and ice is treacherous, although I’m still able to walk with AFO’s, I imagine those elements will certainly affect mobile devices.

      I cannot tolerate the heat. I like the temp outside to be-in the 70’s with little humidity

      I think having the windows open and feeling the warm air come in from outside definitely lightens my spirits.  I can’t manage walking outside by myself, so it helps me feel as if I am sort of outside!  Walking in the ice and snow with my AFO’s and my walker is certainly a bit of a challenge.  Once I got a rollator for leaving the house, I found it much easier than the traditional type of walker that I had been using.  I don’t actually mind the wintertime either, as I love the fact it brings Thanksgiving and Christmas…..my favorite days of the year!
