|I added handles and foot pegs for my 3 year old, now we can go to the park again.|
Pain is easy to deal with. Lack of mobility is depressing. After 3 weeks of crutches it was getting to my head. I needed a way to move faster. My son was desperate to play with me. I needed to be able to cook and clean by myself (my wife is about to have a baby.
My solution " goodbyecrutches.com " ~ In the beginning I had too much pride to "need" a scooter. The reality is crutches are a horrible way to move around. They take both arms, you cant do anything. I just ended up on the floor and the furniture getting depressed.
So i decided that looking silly is far less important to getting around.
I called the company and they were very nice. The cost is 100 bucks for a month, I do not have much money (a teacher) but I will skip some meals to get around easier.
The scooter arrived 2 days later. The set up was easy. I only planned on using it around the house and to take walks with my family.
This morning it is raining. Crutches slip easily ~ do I call in sick to work?
No! man up, take the laughs and just get on the scooter.
Wow! I can get around work!!!! I don not care how i look. I can do my job better.
