aros with chronic illness and pain


Recommended Posts

If my doctor told me I could not use a knee brace because it would weaken my thigh muscles even more, does that exclude me from using a cane? 

I’ve been using a cane (unknown to my family + new doctor) for about a month now, and it’s been saving my ass in school. But now I’m worried it could make my chronic pain worse, or further complicate things. 

I’m a minor who doesn’t really know who to get help from (because of ableism). Do any other chronically ill folks have any suggestions / experience here?
