      So, a few weeeks ago I confessed that I was going to take the jump and get forearm crutches..

      I should have been using them for the past 4 yrs! It’s so much easier to walk! I can walk father and easier. I am noticing the scenery around me like I never have been before.

      I just use one crutch on the left, cuz that’s the directon that I tend to weave. This is so much better than weaving and getting tired and having short strides.

      I’m sharing this info in case others are on the same fence that I was on.

      I found using a crutch instead of a cane a huge difference”’ Offers so much more support/less falling/balance safety. A cane just didn’t cut it for me.
      I usually hold on to shopping cart when out. I can walk so much better/have more stability.
      Good for you”’ What color did ya get????

      I ordered grey, and got black… style and price trumped color. It took 3 times as long as expected for the co to deliver, and the first delivery was a totally wrong style of crutch. As a result, when the black came I decided they were perfect. Decorating can be done if necessary.

      Right now, I’m just thrilled to have “lefty” in my life.
