  • I've never had any major injuries, but every day or two I seem to happily notice how great it is to walk easily and pain-free even at my advanced age of 47ish.
  • yes i am just starting to get back on my legs, after losing muscle from an eating disorder. i take great joy in every step i take, after two yrs in a chair.
  • Yes..six weeks after I break a toe..every time! :)
  • Yes, after a possible cancer scare (it was a benign tumor) and hysterectomy 3 years ago, I wasn't able to get around for quite a while...it was a chore to roll over much less stand up. No driving, no lifting...could hardly climb stairs. When I was finally able to walk without difficulty, I nearly jumped up and down.
  • After my cesarean I felt real glad to have feeling in my body. I have taken care of quadriplegics before and it scared me to see what they go through day in and day out. Now if only I could get feeling back around the incision site.
  • it is very painful for me to walk due to chronic knee pain that seems to be getting worse. i see a doctor in mid june and i can't wait. i can't wait for him to fix my knee so i can take long walks and hikes.
  • always i am 22 and have rheumatoid arthritis and will probably be walking with a stick within the next 5 years and in a chair by the time im 30 so i try to make the most of it even if i am in pain
  • Yes. I once had severe hip and back problems for over 6 years. Before that I had been very active and was an avid backpacker, going out hiking for up to 2 weeks. But then I couldn't even walk through a store or barely get to my car. Finally found someone to help me and then we went to the mountains and I remember that little walk to see a crater and a waterfall. I couldn't believe I was walking out in nature again. We both cried about it. It was wonderful!
  • my friend had a stoke when she was just 19 years old and had to learn to walk again. She walks everyday now and loves it.
  • Yep!!! Broken back and fused spinal disks. I nearly lost the ability to walk so I am thrilled to ache and hobble a bit but still be able to get around under my own power. I do not take this ability for granted.
  • I broke my leg about two years ago and as soon as those crutches went away, I felt as though there wasn't anything holding me back from doing anything!! I loved it!
  • Yes ... I'm glad to be alive and proving doctors wrong ... I was the only survivor of a car accident that killed the drunk that ran a red light speeding and hit us, and killed the other 3 people in the car I was a back seat passenger in ... after 16 months in a wheel chair and another 6 months on crutches I am back teaching self defense and jogging daily ... the doctors said my crushed hips and destroyed lumbar vertebrae guaranteed that I would spend the rest of my life in the wheelchair ... I proved them wrong and healed both my hips and spine, to the amazement of several nerve specialists.
  • I have, after recovering from various activities that strain my leg muscles.
