Feeling Self-Conscious & Walking on steep terrain even with new diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

Hi, I just started Pole Walking and was feeling a little self-conscious about it. However, friends and I decided to go trail – walking in Cathedral Lakes Provincial Park in southern BC. It was glorious. Everyone was with Poles and I even managed to go hiking up to the 8000′ level using my Walking Poles. This was steep terrain! I felt as though I had accomplished a lot even with my new diagnosis of MS.
