I feel so old...

I got my first cane in the mail today !!
In the box along with the cane and directions was a whole series of mixed emotions....
I mean... I need it, there's no doubt about it.
The Dr. has ordered it.
I can barely walk on my own anymore.
The Doctors orders say I'm not suppose to walk for more than 5 minutes at a time :(

Uhhh....the dreaded moment in an old woman's life!!
But wait.... I'm not even old yet!!
Am I ?? I mean I'm only 38!!
This can't be right...
Maybe this is for the neighbor....'s for me. 
I can only wish it was for the neighbor.

At's pretty cool looking :)
Check it out....

I chose the blue one!!
It's actually more like a teal (my favorite color!!)

I've already checked it out around the house...
Now I just have to get up the nerve to take it out of the house ;)

Stay tuned for more on my new cane
and my official review...


My ailments....

Mostly I've always been caught up in my own chronic pain and/or feeling sorry for myself.

Lately, I've decided to QUIT feeling sorry for myself and make the best of each day that I can.
I mean it's obvious that the pain is never really going to fully go away,
so there really is no need to keep complaining about it.

Well except for the fact that...MISERY LOVES COMPANY :(

I have decided that I would much rather share my company with people who aren't miserable....and even if they are on the inside, or pain least they are trying to make the most of what life they have left each day!!

A few of my diagnoses are:

Lupus SLE
Anklosing Spondlylitis
Sciatica (severe)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
I have a crushed tail-bone that didn't get treated...
(But that's a whole long story in itself, I might share it some day!?!?)
