Thankful someone was smoking outside in the parking lot at the time and I was able to ask them to give me a helping hand. He asked what was wrong and this led to a quick opportunity to share a little bit with him about Muscular Dystrophy. At this point he offered to take the garbage bags I was holding to the bin for me, which really helped me out. I quickly asked if he could assist me in getting off the ice safely. He helped me and I quickly made my way back inside. This is the day that someone's smoking habit actually saved my life or at least saved me from a nasty fall.
At this point in my life I am so happy that I am no longer shy about asking other people for help when I need it. The lesson learned on this day is that during the winter season it is a great idea to always wear my yaktrax slip on ice walkers. As they are a true life saver and a must have for any one still walking with Muscular Dystrophy!
