Does Anyone Have A Problem With Walking?

Does Anyone Have A Problem With Walking?

I can not go shopping because I end up in so much pain I want to scream.

When I first got sick, I didn't understand what was happening. I would go to the store and it felt like my legs were going to completely give out. I could only go in the store down one aisle and back to the checkout. I couldn't do my normal shopping. I also had pain in my back and hips. Finally, I got the courage to use the electric shopping cart at the store. It was such a relief. I had the freedom to shop as long as I wanted to. People were nicer to me than when I tried to walk. Now, I only shop in stores that have those electric carts. I have waited a half hour, at times, for one of those carts. So, if your stores have those electric carts, use one. They are pure freedom.

Linda, I have a walker and am using it once a day to do some walking. It has a seat so I can sit and rest when it gets too much.
