I didn't know where to post this, but my doctor just wrote a Rx for me to get a quad cane (hoping insurance would pay), but it didn't. We are going to buy one tomorrow. I'm only 37 and so ashamed of my condition....mainly b/c I'm so afraid to embarrass my children. How was it getting used to a cane if you have used one? I feel like I need training (lol)...my bad side is my right (sciatica), but my right hand and arm strength has nerve damage from cervical discs, so holdin'g on is going to be a challenge. I'm very nervous...but I fall frequently and I hold onto everything in the house walking around. Sigh....I just can't believe it's come to this. My ALJ hearing is in 2 weeks...so I'm just a ball of nerves anyway. Any advice you all have wll be greatly appreciative.
