Mobility Aids for Fibromyalgia


Today I found myself reading an article about mobility aids for those of us with Fibromyalgia.  I never thought that at 30 years old, such an article would be important to me, but it is and the reality of that is a little scary.  My family and friends think that I shouldn’t worry about things like that yet and maybe they’re right, but I feel like I have to prepare myself for the future as much as possible.  This illness is hard as hell to deal with and I have this constant need to try to stay one step ahead of it.  I think that’s actually an impossible task, but I still try.  The thought of needing assistance to walk on a regular basis isn’t something I like to think about, but I can’t act like it’s not a possibility.  My body is failing me and there’s not a lot I can do about that, but I can keep my mind strong and I don’t feel that I can have a strong mind if I can’t come to terms with what the future holds.  I don’t know about all of you, but I can’t afford to be in denial.  I’ve tried that and I almost ended everything.  I don’t care if everyone thinks I research Fibromyalgia too much because I know I’m doing what I have to do to survive this illness.  They would do the same if they were in my situation, but I hope they never have to be.

mobility aids

 

At 44 im considering using a scooter for errands like groceries and library.My SIL tells me im too young and my MIL thinks ill get dependant on it.They dont understand that i feel like im 90 and need to conserve energy yet have a fullfilling life too.

 

It is sad to think that you know people who have to use mobility aids even when that person is you but there are more and more mobility aids out there to help those in need. It is awesome how each of these products is able to change the lives of those who use them. It makes me wonder what type of mobility aids we will have the more technology changes our lives. A lot to look forward too.
