I'm really struggling whether or not to bring up getting a handi-cap permit to my doc. I trying to type and explain why I have a problem with it, it's difficult to explain. Guilt? Embarassment? Do I need it there's people a lot worse off? These are the questions that come to mind. One of my biggest peav's is people who misuse a handicap parking permit, I'm very close to someone who does it. I guess I should know myself well enough to realize I wouldn't misue it. It all is situational; Am I having an above normal for me pain day? Is it a long ways to walk? Am I having more weakness today? Those situations are where I've needed it. I sometimes hurt so bad getting from the parking lot into the store I just want to turn around and go back. It would just help sometimes!! I'm hoping the SCS will help the Sciatica enough so I can walk further, but even then there's times..... Do any of you have one that are like me???
