Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

crutches

Postby Melissa » Sat Nov 01, 2008 7:21 pm

I've been using 2 forearm crutches for 3 years now. GP didn't want to prescribe them, so I just bought a pair. They're not terribly expensive, if you look around the internet. I recommend the full cuff kind over the half cuff style, since the stay attached to your arms.

As for becoming dependent on the crutches, I don't think it's a big issue. It's actually more of an issue for other people who worry about me being dependent on them, especially since I'm only 24 and use the crutches all the time. Well sorry, but I feel much steadier with the crutches and can walk much farther and more easily with them. Have I become dependent on them? I suppose so. I have no plans to ever stop using them and they're really only a minor inconvenience. I can't see where my life would be any better if I got rid of them. I would probably stay in the house too much.

Hope this helps.

Thanks all for the advice, I have made an appointment with OT, not for crutches but to see if they can recommend gadgets etc to help me dress and cook. I will prob mention the crutches thing cos walking is especially difficult these days, its not nice seeing ageing grannies and grandpas rushing on ahead of me to the shops, they are already in their house having a cup of tea while I just making it back to the door. lol

Hi Ally

Getting an appointment for an OT is a good idea. Mine came ot visit me in my home where she could see the problems that I was having with everyday tasks. She had a look around the house and had a chat, then a few days later I had a delivery of a stool, step for the bath, a walking stick, and various other small aids. A week later a chap turned uo to fit a new hand rail on my stairs, rails in my bathroom ect ect. Really useful stuff.

Just wanted to share my positive experience (nice for a change)

Good luck

Tine xx :)
