Indeed. I find women and elderly people holding the door for me. Those I've always held the door for. I.e. a gentlemanly thing to do. Hard to accept for that reason. But I DO use a hand crutch as a walking stick.  I still have to modify it with adds piston.  Which is still on my cane.

on the stumpy side. got the shrinker sock on it right now to see if swelling will go down. going to give it a few days. took a shower earlier. years ago added a shower stall to a converted linen closet. it was comical to say the least. but i ended up being a straight guy coming out of the closet after it was over. lmao.

Gotta be washed bro!... Again from what ive observed in others and on tv over the years rather than real medical knowledge!!... Barring some carry over infection from surgery (not that long ago really) swelling and discomfort post prosthetic fitment 'might' be due to a fitment or movement stump/device issue? .. Make sure when you have your prosthetic follow up that you press the point of if you have noticed your new leg cup slipping around on the stump at all!? .. Getting used to it is one thing but making sure its not being "the uncomfortable sock" causing irritation and swelling is primo important! ... And making sure that you and they are on same page of understanding whats happening. ... "They'd have to realise" just wont cut it! :thumb:

But I managed to get you back here john!  You can check in any time you want, but you can't never leave! :flipoff: (yeah, I know double negative, but I don't know exact lyrics  :flipoff:)

Sometimes, life is depressing. No more losing parts we CAN see, no more losing parts we CAN'T but would also sure be nice to still have. Sigh. Suck is life (sic).  :woohoo: :woohoo: But it's weekend!  :cheers:

love,
pandy  :kiss3:

I have hopefully the last flu of the season *snuffle* My excitement will be a third coffee and an extra blanket. Once I'm completely through the delerious phase, it'll be interesting to see what I've done to my laptop.  :technical:

Seemed a propos. I haven't read every post, so this may have been covered. Have you applied for SSDI? That would be one less thing you have to worry about. I know you're young and I know you have plenty of life left in you. Plenty easy to get off SSDI later when you feel better. Better right now to not have to worry about paying rent, etc. Yeah, I know I'm buggin' ya'. ;-)

Possible you might have to start over again given the amount of time since denial.....don't give up, though...that's what they hope is that we won't give up. If you've earned the benefits, don't let them take them from you.

not worked enough in 10 years to qualify. my a$$. there are times ive wanted to give up entirely. but i wont do that. tn being a right to starve state. makes things difficult. EXTREMELY. also no medicaid unless i have kids. wth, so ive ncy boy to go create something i cant afford....to save my arse lmao. good logic there guvna. methinks its time to relocate soon. thats a given. but that takes fundage. to get that i have to work, which at this point isnt possible. not on that scale anyways. C'est La vie lol.

Hey man, just wanted to chime in and say that there are probably more people than you realize reading and wishing you the best along the way! I think anyone who has been through some s*** knows how hard it is to figure out the right thing to say in consolation that, despite best intentions, is both meaningful and "feels" genuine.

Cheers to your fight and best of luck! :cheers: When life kicks ya in the nads,  keep gettin back up just to spite that MFer just like you have been.

Also, just curious, you have any other interests to keep you distracted, like reading/video games, etc? Midday soap operas and Jerry Springer don't count...  :icon_lol: If I know anything, it's that there's nothing more maddening than sitting around with nothing to think about other than how much pain you're in!  :2guns:

That would be maddening... I can empathize with that much for sure. All my work travel these days tends to be as far from civilization as possible  :cookoo: The outdoors and national parks are great until it gets dark too early to enjoy wherever you're visiting by the time you finish the job. And yet... I am still not tired of the beer and wings routine that travel lends itself to!  :cheers:

Being a huge enginerd, my fall backs were always pre-downloaded audiobooks from the library and my RetroPi kit to keep the boredom at bay... never very practical to take anything Steam-capable with me. Get a lot of reading done too, which I suppose is a good thing!
