I am going to be "walking" in the suicide prevention walk in September in remembrance of my cousin that took his own life and because SO many Lymies struggle with suicidal thoughts or actually end up taking their life. Such a hard, lonely disease for many. I am hoping I can find someone to sponsor me and let me use a scooter like that! There is no way I would be able to do the walk otherwise and it's important to me that I am there!
So those of us that need to use a scooter, wheel chair, etc from time to time or all of the time-ignore those annoying pitty looks and do it for your health!! I won't wait until I am in so much pain and so weak the next time around!
