Finding freedom in the forest | Penny’s story


It’s a very simple thing to do, to walk
through the woods, to listen and to hear the birds and things. When I was told I did have
multiple sclerosis I was frightened, I was angry, I was terrified that all of
a sudden I’ll be in a wheelchair and my life would actually just stop. All the things and bright ideas I had to
do wasn’t going to happen. I never thought I’d be able to go in to woods again. But now having the ability to do so in my
scooter, I’m as good as walking. I get to explore places, I can see things I never thought I’d be able to see again. The wetness of the trees when it rains,
the smell of it is beautiful, and I’m back to nature, which I always liked doing. It’s so perfect, it’s so much freedom for me. I can enjoy the woods like anyone else.
