Hello everybody, long term lurker and occasional poster. I have FM and ME and nerve damage to my back, spinal structure (not cord) and recently problems with my right hip, whole pelvis and carpel tunnel in my right wrist as well as mildly in my left from years and years of being on and off crutches. I have been given "gutter crutches" by my physio, not nearly as cool as my Kowsky "stealth" ones which are black so go with any outfit...anyway, I'm going off topic. I went out with new gutter crutches and endured the walker verses crutches lecture from my mother, it's a well known and oft visited debated between us. She is right though and I have recently looked at getting a tri walker for going out and about. My question to you all is do you have one? Does it help and how? How did you get over using something for disabled people? That last one is my biggest reason for not taking the plunge. I am 27, I have dyed red hair, tattoos and piercings so am reasonably alt and a part time model.
