You'll do just fine Sue!! Conferences can truly suck.. but sometimes they can be fun too. Since this is a psych conference hopeful the people you'll be with will be more accepting and understanding. If not... you can bonk 'em over the head with your cane The run them over with a wheelchair!!! That's what I'd do!!!! heheheheh
Good luck and lots of supportive hugs!!!
Don't worry about using a cane. I get some weird looks but everyone is more polite to me when they see I have a cane. I am probably going to have to use mine later today because I did alot of running around yesterday. I am so sore I actually found my Oxycodon and took a half a pill. I am just now starting to feel a little better.
