Advice & Tips:
I strongly resisted giving in to using a cane until my MD asked me to try it for one week and do an honest evaluation. I realized at the end of that time that I had more energy at the end of the day. I think this is because I was using a great deal of energy just trying to keep my balance. I also think that I resisted because it represented my failure to "be normal"
