Due to sore muscles that are very prone to spasms, carrying anything is a big obstacle of mine. If a bra or purse strap hurts like hell, then a backpack or any kind of heavy handled tote has always been a nightmare. So over a decade later, I now feel like an idiot that it took this long to find this solution. Only $19.99!
This will be perfect for things like taking Christopher’s daughter to the local pool. It’s maybe a 2-block walk and I like to bring a bunch of stuff with me to camp out in the shade with (towel, book, snacks, etc). She has her own stuff to carry so now I can roll along with her. Here’s hoping that’s not too embarrassing for her.
I broke it in this weekend at the NH Walk to Cure Arthritis, where I handed out Living Incurably Goodie Bags. It worked great, I outfitted the back with zip ties to attach a camera, water bottle, and parasol.
The event raised a lot of money for the Arthritis Foundation, which is wonderful. Despite all my layers of protection, however, it was way too sunny for me and have been feeling very sick ever sense. BUT despite that, I’m feeling very victorious that I found a solution which allowed me to transport stuff without a helper. So, feeling like a bit of a dreadful sick Lupus patent today – but a dreadful sick Lupus patient with wheels that make her a little more independent! I look forward wheeling somewhere else soon – but in the shade.
