Re: Adding to the joys of walking....

Thanks Ginger,
Yeah, I get your toddler metaphor, I'm still pretty discouraged with myself. It also doesn't help that I was super excited about walking and all the people I told (I'm at a conference with some grad school friends) were like "Oh cool, that's nifty". Like they were excited for me, but you could tell it was a "wow, you mean you aren't doing that yet. Why is that a big deal? I walk all the time, how long have you been injured?"

My mental state is a bit rough at the moment. Madison, WI is a great walking city and even with my knee scooter, I'm just exhausted. And my friends just don't understand. They are all super helpful, for sure, but...I don't know, it's rough. It's why I'm glad I have you all.
