Default Allan Miller SPMS Victoria BC Canada

Hi everybody

This is a great blog. Very positive and I find that very helpful.

68 year old male retired elementary school teacher from Ottawa. Statistical outlier. Diagnosed 3 years ago with SPMS.

My wife and I are moving to Victoria where the weather and walking is better.

I try to keep my weight down. My GP and the physiotherapist from the MS Society of Canada both gave me a gentle smack down and said to only use a scooter or power chair when I really need to. Use it or lose it!

On May 3rd my team, the Miller Milers raised over $9,000 for the MS Walk. I walked 3 km with my outdoor rollator, a Swedish one. If you're interested send me a private message or email to and I'll give you details. I also use shock absorbing cane tips that I imported from England. They protect my hands, elbows, and shoulders from stress. I type on an iPad and I use a predictive keyboard app which makes that easier. And I also dictate typing for emails, etc.

Thanks, David, for the motivation to stay active and positive!

I'm on facebook if you want to follow or friend me. Always positive!
