For a while now, people have been suggesting that I try a walker that I push in front of me, rather than one I pull behind me like my current Nimbo frame Martha.
I’ve been putting this off and putting this off for ages because, if I’m honest, the thought absolutely terrifies me. What if I fall backwards? What if I fall trying to push it down or pull it up a kurb? How will I cope going down a hill?
The thing is Martha is getting old and is starting to show signs of wear and tear. I’m scared but I’ve said I’ll give it a go, because at least that way I’ll know if it’s right for me once and for all. A lady from the hospital dropped one off for me yesterday to try while I still have a Nimbo Frame to use. If I like, I’ll just carry on using it, and if I don’t, I can send it back.
