Not So Young, But Still -
I"m 33, which may sound old to some. I started using a cane over ten years ago, then was diagnosed with an inoperable double knee condition. I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, arthritis, ibs, scoliosis as well, and am awaiting tests for MS. I look about ten years younger than I am, and when people see me walking with my cane or in my wheelchair, 95% of them give me those mean, dirty looks and it hurts, it REALLY hurts. I didn't ask for this; I'm just trying to make the best of it.. I don't understand the anger and hostility!
