I currently walk with a stick because I am not too steady on my pins and my lymphoedema has weakened my left ankle very badly. Like many of you I am unable to walk much of a distance, even with a stick. I can still drive, but only for about 30 mins or so, before the pain gets too much. I am waiting for occupational health to come and do an assessment.
I would love to be able to browse in shops but I am lucky if I can make it through the ones I can right outside of, let along get to any others. I am a crafter and would love to go to the twice yearly craft show in Glasgow but I know I would never manage. I feel there are so many things I cannot do anymore and it is really getting me down, but losing my independance is the worst thing.
Is there anything out there that I could ask occupational health for, or buy myself, that will help me be a bit more independent?
Hi Lruk I hope that you get the help you need to keep you as independant as you can be. would an escort to the craft show be any good to you?
I live in Glasgow if it was possible depending on when and my work commitment I could escort you but if you read my post you probably would not want me to escort you as I have fallen twice this year!!!!!
