does anyone here use a cane? if so, what kind? is it adjustable? what is the grip like? how many did you go through before you found the right one? i've recently aggravated an old injury from an industrial accident and find myself needing a cane for basic point A to B. i'm 34 yrs old but look like i could be much younger. i find that when people see me with a cane, they jump to one of a few common misconceptions. a.) its a sword cane!!(california does not allow it's citizens to carry such things(who does? eh?)) b.) i'm too young to need one so i must be faking it to gain sympathy. c.) <insert countless mocking insults here> i've tried all the walgreens/walmart specials and none of them seem to be just right. i'm currently using a hand-me-down from someone who knew someone who passed away and doesn't need it anymore. i've had two of these and not only do they make me feel odd every time i pick them up but, the length/grip/weight/look/feel of them just isn't right. i've been to physical therapists but they seem to have a list of devices they are bound to. only one of them seemed like it would work for me but alas, the insurance wouldn't cover it because it was 'too pretty'. sigh... the last thing i want is to be flashy with a cane. i need it to blend in and not be noticed! ok, there have been a few that the PTs said were for me but they looked more like a crutch than a cane. google and the like only come up with gimmick/advertisements so i'm asking the mud-h8-ers. .
