Wheelchair or no Wheelchair

I have a dilemma I can not take walks or stand for any amount of time. No one seems to know why. I can run, dance, exercise and move in any other way except standing or walking. I think this is a result of hurting the center of my back when my mom was alive and we were taking care of her she had ALS.

I have had x-rays and tested for everything but nothing shows up. I thought maybe this was a complication of diabetes's but it does not follow the normal way it would for a diabetic complication and it is not affected by my blood sugar.

It may be a complication of Cystic Fibrosis but if so there is not much that can be done.

I just never had back issues before I hurt it with mom. so that is my logic.

Anyway I can't walk more then 2 blocks give or take a few feet with hip pain starting. It will get worse until I stop and sit but the rub it once it gets to the pain it is just bad for a while regardless of what I do.

I can stand at the sink and wash dishes but only one sink full any more and it is the same as above.

Last night we had the 3 kids, our daughter and granddaughter and I did not want to cook so I thought we could walk up to norms and eat. Before we left I knew I was not gonna make it so I said lets walk to Woody's it is about half the distance and only a couple of blocks away. By the time we got to the signal about halfway my hips already were getting tight and the pain was on the way.

So here is my dilemma. If I get a wheelchair then I could walk until it hurts and then use it to go to places I like to walk to like the store and Target. I can't sit and get right back up like a walker would allow. But I am afraid if I get a wheelchair I will give up fighting to fix the issue and get comfortable or that I am just being a big baby when it could be much worse.

I miss stuff but I have been using missing stuff like walking to Target with my youngest to push me so I am unsure what to do so I guess I am asking what would you do?

Be loved you are

We can get one and hook a lawnmower engine up to it. VROOM! You'd be the baddest ass mom on the block.

Hey Evol,

I think Zeke has a good idea. =)

Whatever the case, you seem to be a warrior. May the doctors find what's the matter and may the Lord's presence be with you!

Lady Z it sounds like the Doc (Dr. Z) is in favor of keeping you mobile. I would say anywhere you're not able to go is a place that missed a blessing but I have confidence you'll make the right decision. You know we'll ask for healing but for courage strength and wisdom as well.

We love you sis.

I totally understand your dilemma!
At one point I had to decide to either get a power-chair or be housebound. I let go of my pride and choose the first, but still tried to do as much as I could without it.

Being a fighter, I think you would only use it when you had to and I suspect you might be grateful for it. It keeps you mobile, you still can walk as much as you can and it allows you to go where you can't go now. Did you consider a power-chair?
How about one of those fold-up barstools next to your sink, so when you start to hurt, you can sit down and still do what you need/want to do?

Laura, there is a link in my right-side-bar for all kinds of gadgets etc to make life easier. Maybe they have some alternatives? Won't hurt to check it out.

As Kc already mentioned, we keep praying for you, girl.

(((HUGS))) and love.

God's Grace.

Well I really really really appreciate everything you all have said except Zeke!

I know it would seem like an easy choice and it would be if I knew what was wrong I could accept my limitations. I don't want to accept what I might be able to change.

pecheur not feeling so much like a warrior lately but I am trying :)

kc your a doll

Corry you really are a inspiration I almost wish they would have found joint problems on x-ray or something cause at least I would know I am sure you understand that.
I don't care so much about the issue of having and using a chair I just don't want to use one if down the road I find out because I used one it caused more harm.
Ill check out the links on your blog.

Be loved all you are, without any doubt.
Love you Zeke

I didn't say anything, because I don't really know which is better. I do know that I love you.

And if you do get wheels, get one of those wicked electric scooters and put some chrome and custom paint (flames, maybe) on the side. That would be sah-weet.

I do understand your dilemma, girl.
Since you don't know what to do, it's prolly best to do nothing but pray about it. As long as you know it's not your pride preventing you (which it doesn't sound like), God will show you the best way.
And I will pray with you and for you! :-)

love you, girl.

God's Grace.
