Thanks to Friedreich’s ataxia, I’m never more anxious than in an open crowd in a big space. While feeling hopeless and lost in space, a lot of mixed emotions and questions run through my head: “Will I be able to transport through the crowd OK, or will I lose my balance when doing so? Will people judge my walker use?” My fiance Justin and I recently attended a concert with general admission seating. It was hard to fight my anxieties while there. However, I knew I was safe and in good hands by being there with Justin.
A Pearl Jam tribute band was playing at Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino in Chester, Pennsylvania. Justin and I love Pearl Jam and live music, and Guy Fieri just opened a new restaurant there, so we thought to ourselves, “Why not?”
