Thank you for explaining that. I had never heard of this disease. But I do have a question. You mentioned that you like to hike. But you also said sometimes your legs stop moving when you’re mowing the lawn. Isn’t it pretty risky to hike? What happens if your legs stop moving while you’re on a trail somewhere?

I hope you don’t hike alone. I hardly get to hike anymore or even go for my nature walks because it’s no longer safe to go alone. I don’t have anyone to walk with anymore. I hope you do have someone to share your hikes.
