Mobility aids

Postby NaomiHelen » Tue May 02, 2017 11:49 am

Hello!
So I am having a pretty silly issue right now and I am wondering if I just need to suck it up or if someone else has any tips for me. I am 26 and work full time. I was very active and always dragging my friends to the gym or for a walk. Now I am stuck finding myself struggling to walk. I have borrowed a pair of crutches from my friend which are fine for now but a massive pain for my hands. My grandma has suggested her walker but I am 26 and I am really embarrassed using crutches in public let alone a walker or zimmer.... I am really tempted by a wheel chair as less embarassing but don't want to not use my legs at all! I really don't know what to do!

Yeah I am definitely open to the idea. I just feel like I will look silly if that makes sense! Will have to have a nosey around. I'm glad it's not just me.
