    I'm so happy you've found something to make you more mobile. That's wonderful. I like the description of yellow – especially optimism. I have RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and osteoarthritis and every year I see my body go downhill a little more. Many people with RA end up in wheel chairs. A friend gave me a carved cane but I don't quite need it yet. The problem I see in the future – I have pain all over – arms,, hands, legs, back – I can't see me using a walker and I;m not sure I could use your new sticks. Maybe I'll never need them. I'm optimistic. #MMBC

    Keep on to your optimism, you never know x The good thing about these sticks is that they are designed to support you without causing pressure on arms and hands. x

    Wow, they look so modern. It just be lovely to get some freedom back. All the best with the journey X #mmbc

    I have been on crutches for 2 years so understand your struggle a little. I have recently had to change my nhs ones because my hands were so sore from gripping them. My new ones aren't as good as yours but have a much more comfortable grip and are a nice blue colour. Did you know you can also get drinks holders to attach to your crutch? I hope you continue to benefit from your new sticks! #mmbc

    I've only used crutches a small handful of times but these ones look fabulous and judging by your review they are extremely functional. It's so nice to see there are more stylish looking mobility devices available. The yellow is very pretty.

    I love that you have found something that helps. Although I did pause for a moment when you said you had taken a loo selfie! Maybe I have been spending too much time chatting with my kids because my humour is very infantile just now.

    Those crutches look amazing! I have never had crutches (poo-poo) before, but I understand and empathize with nerve pain, spasms and tightness. I have occipital neuralgia and have found to date, the very best thing that helps relieve the pain and ease the spasms is medical marijuana. Have you tried it? My problem now is it is not yet available in my state. I was in Colorado at the time. I know now why people up and move. Sending you a big hug, Raisie Bay, and applauding you with every move! xoxo #mg

    These crutches look and sound great. I was on crutches for about six weeks last week and a month or so this year, a month or so oooms next year too. I also found some fold-up walking sticks very useful and the fact they could be put in a bag when feeling confident was a great help. Lovely to see your “out and about” picture x

    I never have had to use them, and I honestly can't imagine it. you are doing a great job, and I'm happy you've found something that helps, a bit – every little helps! 🙂 #TheMMLinky

    The primary reasons you might want to start using a walker or rollator are to help you walk independently with less pain and discomfort, increase your s.afety and prevent falls, improve the distance you can walk
