I went to an amusement park with my family last week and used an umberella I brought to protect me from the sun as a cane. And I saw one at the pharmacy the other day when I was with my mom and told her thats what I needed. Whenever I say stuff like that she says "you cant have it both ways" because I say all the time I dont want people thinking of me as being disabled. I wish she would understand my need to feel like a normal 18 year old, while also feeling like an 80 year old woman. If you feel like one would be useful, even some of the time when you're going to be on your feet more, I'd say get one.
