Odd time

Over the last couple of years I have had problems with on foot catching the ground occasionally, and sometimes hit the ground.



Other times I have managed to save myself from doing any serious damage.


This is now getting worse, and it's happened so much that I now have a very sore hip and knee.

My main problem is I suppose pride, as with all men


My wife is always telling me to use a walking stick, but my pride gets in the way, but now I realise that she us right, and in am going to gave to use this whether I like it or not.


My days of long walks have started to disappear, as it's too painful, so if this helps I just have to accept it and move on.


One of the problems with a stock is that I keep kicking it as the foot which catches the ground is also stocking out at an angle, and this causes a few problems, too.


I am not sure whether this is yet another part of the Lewy Body Dementia or not, but may be I will find out when I see the new consultant this month.
