"Do I really need that?" I wondered as I pondered how uncomfortable I would feel. After all, I don't look like I need a wheelchair (I "look so good"). I can walk alright (for short distances), and people would think I was lazy or faking it (where have you heard that before?!), and I had a cane (the purple one) so I'd be okay, right? Besides, I wanted to prove to myself how independent I can be (stupid ego speaking).

"The decision to go with the flow can take courage because you are surrendering the notion that you need to do everything by yourself." - Enjoying the Ride, Daily Om
This was neither humiliating nor embarrassing. It was not a sign of weakness, but rather of sign of resourcefulness and good judgement in being receptive to help. I’m so glad I took this energy-conservation advice. Thanks to all of you who badgered me, and sorry for not believing you. Lesson learned: It takes courage to ask for help, but it is a sign of strength.
Feel free to say, "I told you so."
