I am 25 years old and suffer from fibromyalgia and about 5 months ago I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot. Essentially, I struggle with chronic pain, and for me it mostly effects my lower body. This includes; my back, knees, ankles, and feet. I was advised by the pain clinic to start using crutches a couple of months ago. But due to anxiety issues, I really struggle with this. I don't use my crutches outside of the house even when I really need too. Unfortunately, my pain has now reached a point where I cannot physically stand or walk AT ALL without the use of a mobility aid. I feel like although this has been a long time coming, I am finding it extremely difficult to comes to terms with the fact that my body cannot do what I need it too. I'm only 25 and chronic pain has left me physically disabled. I just feel like this is so unfair.
If anyone has any advice at all about accepting the use for mobility aids I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read 🙏 #Disabled #Fibromyalgia #PlantarFaciitis #crutches #Mobilityaid
