Atlantic Coast Holiday Park Looks great for those with disabilities. Might be worth checking out

I never knew there were so many long-term SPD sufferers!
I had it with both pregnancies (12 years apart) but the last one 3 years ago was horrendous, and my pelvis completely came apart. I did get the c-section even though I'd gone into spontaneous (and very fast)labour because James was also breech and the scans had suggested he was much bigger than he actually was.

The ligaments in my feet were also affected both times, but especially the last.

So now everything below the waist is becoming twisted and, for want of a better word, knackered due to an unsympathetic GP practice not wanting to know about it for nearly 3 years, but at last something is finally being done about it all since I moved.

But without camping I would have gone completely barmy! I used to live in a 2nd floor maisonnette and it was very difficult for me to get out without my partner, but when camping (ok getting off the floor 1st thing in the morning is a bit undignified and accompanied by a few curses) just being able to get up and walk in a straight line for as far as I want is by far the best treatment I could wish for. I found I was living a much more "normal" life when camping than I ever did at home, and I was even able to go away without my partner, with my friend and her kids. And there is no pressure to do anything at any particular time so you can just go with the flow and do as much or as little as you feel up to.

It is especially important when you have physical problems to make sure you get the right equipment, such as chairs and a bed that you are happy with but once you have found what you need then there is no reason why you cannot have the best holidays of your life.
