I remember how I felt when I first brought and received my cane back in February this year, I have Fibromyalgia. I was embarrassed and scared to use it in public, I mean I was a 19 year old, a few months before I had been working with young children and constantly active. It was impossible to come to terms with having a walking stick.
But now only 6 months later I am so comfortable (most the time) with my Gregory (named my stick after House md). The looks I get some time are hard to shake off but my cane has given me my life back, it allows me to walk and be able to do everything with other people. It has opened up my life and keeps me as active as I can be.
I am proud of my Cane and it is a wonderful at helping me carry on my life.
