*Crutches are painful. It doesn’t matter if you have them correctly sized. Your hands will get sore from pushing and your arms will get sore from constantly having a crutch between your arm and your body.
*Everything takes at least three times as long as it used to.
*A fanny pack would be awesome. It wouldn’t necessarily need ruffles.
*A third arm would be awesome.
*I can’t carry anything. I’ve spilled/dropped pretty much everything I’ve tried. I’ve come to realize that I rarely walk from one place to another without carrying something. Maybe I need one of those dog-collar-beer-barrel things to put all my stuff in.
*I’m very glad that I have at least moderate upper body strength. I can push myself up from lying down using my arms and my abs. I see a lot of people at work who can’t get out of bed if they can’t use one of their legs. At least I’m not that bad.
