I think we all let our

Stacey! I think we all at times have let our pride get in our way! I remember one time a while back ago grabbing the ladder in our garage because I wanted to put my new curtains up. Did not want to bother my husband. I got up on that ladder and lost my balance and away it went. Got my knee something aweful! I did end up in the ER for that one! Now I let my husband use the ladder! 😀

I know how you feel! I hate using a wheelchair in certain places and a walker. Feel like everybody is staring at me! But after suffering a few times struggling to get back to my car and not knowing if I was going to make it! I now use them and say to myself Who Cares!

To us it’s embarrassing. But then I look at myself and then realize that I am not the only one! But you do learn lessons! I have leaned 20 years of lessons and still learning! I have had about 5 broken toes, a broken wrist, top of my foot broken all because of not using my walking devices. And that was in my own home!

When I wake up in the mornings I have no feet! And can’t feel them so I do the quack quack waddle to the bathroom when waking up. My toes catch it everytime. They have hit tables, chairs, corner moldings and when that toe pops and breaks. That foot comes back to life really fast! Now when I wake up after this last close fall! I have started using my walking devices! Hugs!
Have a fun vacation! You need the resting time!
