My New Wheels

Walking is man’s best medicine. – Hippocrates

Well, I finally did it.  I went out and bought a walker.  It took me so long to make the decision, but I am happy I did it.  Walking for a long time has been getting harder and harder for me so it was time for a change even though nothing says old to me like a walker.  I have taken it out a few times to go for a walk and surprised myself with how far I could walk.  The great thing about it is that I can walk with people at the same height as everyone else.  I didn’t realize what a nice feeling it would be to walk and talk with people while not sitting on my scooter and being so much lower than everyone else.  Change still sucks and I certainly don’t love the walker yet, but I am optimistic that it will help with the lessening strength in my legs.  My main goal is to continue to have the ability to walk so that I can keep doing things I enjoy with my friends and family.  One step towards mobility and health. 

Participation wins over pride today!

Happy walking!
