A walking stick can alert people around you. For many of us it may seem difficult to admit that we are weak, or handicapped in some way. We try to look healthy and melt into the crowd. I am weakened by all cancer treatments and have balance problems. In spite of this I still want to get out and move around among other normal people. In those situations I have found out that it is a good idea to alert other people around me in order to avoid unnecessary accidents. Using a walking stick/cane can be one of the solutions. It improves my safety in crowded places. Tell me about your experience in the discussions forum.
