I force myself to walk on my threadmill because I know it's all I've got. Could walk around the block but with the machine I can get off early if needed and not have to find strength to get home. I've gotten to the point where my husband always lets me push the shopping carts so I have something to lean on. I'd be using a cane already if I could find one that didn't look so frumpy. Any one know a place to find a 'fashionable' cane?
