Ugh. I hate brining my cane or walker somewhere for the first time, especially if it's somewhere I have been before sans assistive device.
People are nice. They care. They want to know what's wrong. (If you're just tuning in, I have polyarticular rhumatoid arthritis that kind of sucks at responding to meds). I am pregnant with our second child (YAY!!!!!) and my spine and hips are mad at me for growing a human inside myself.
Anyway. Assistive devices. It's just embarrassing. Look me in the eyeball and tell me you wouldn't be embarrassed using a walker.
