Margaret is 67 years old. At the age of 45 years the effects of MD became apparent as Margaret had difficulty in climbing stairs and running (Margaret had been a finalist in Qld state primary school sprint for 3 years). Margaret has used a number of strategies to maintain the strength of her muscles including exercise, diet, supplements, and physiotherapy. The regular use of a Kinetic/Tens machine has been a very powerful way for Margaret to exercise muscles. Over the last 10 years Margaret used a walker around the house and lately uses a wheel chair during outings for safety in crowds. At this time Margaret estimates that she could probably walk 100 metres with a walker before being exhausted. Margaret has found that having an interest, like making things to give to ladies who are distressed - like flood victims or people struggling financially keeps her focused. Margaret believes “We have to work with what we can do”.
