I decided this is a disease of the unexpected,chips away freedoms alittle at a time, what it has taught me is to expect the unexpected,that seems to be the norm.You do get some smiles out of this craziness, I was walking to my car with a cane and I thought I was doing ok,well a 95 year old man who was hunched over with his own cane ask me if I needed help,God love him,then I thought how bad do I look, made me smile. People are kind.then I had a man in his late 80's walk around the front of my grocery cart on his cane and unload my grocerys to the belt,again how bad do I look? then I thought he probably thought behind me he would never get out unless he helped me pam

pamgarner It's about empathy and connection. Why wouldn't people want to help one another in simple ways? If someone holds a door open as I wobble forward, it's about his or her good heart and not about how badly I walk. There is so much anger and criticism afloat these days that a moment of pure kindness is a joy. Savor it!
Reminds me of the time I was walking in the mall with my cane and saw a much older couple approaching the door from the other side. He was struggling to push her in a wheelchair and carry their shopping bags. So, I "rushed" to get to the door to hold it open for them. In my "rush", I tripped over my feet and cane and the air and ended up practically in her lap. We all had a good laugh over this (after we made sure no one was hurt).
