I hope you don't have much pain. It seems it's either pain or weakness for me but never the two at the same time, strange. Then everything about this condition is strange.
All the very best,
Thanks....and hope today is a good day for you.
I'm w/ya on the stairs...I call my cane a walking stick LOL..Kath says its bling since I got it at REI...but it is for sure something I use when we go out..I don't take it to work(it is in my Jeep in case i need it)but do about everywhere else....it helps me out and I think keeps everyone around me aware that I have it/watch out for me or I'll poke you w/it
I thought the "heavy legs" was only me...they feel like anchors a lot of the time...
I totally agree w/us being lucky..as I tell my friends...if I can get out of bed that alone is a great thing...going to work is a HUGE positive and like you i want that to continue.
PN for sure is one odd puppy...hard to explain but does kick your butt.
Thanks for the kind words...and hope today is a good one for you...the weekend is almost here
