When at Walmart during a flare up, use the scooters they offer and don't walk all over a Walmart. You hurt afterwards. Off to figure out how to stand up and get to the tub for a soak. Why oh why did I have to make my flare up a worse one..
 
I am telling this so you Dont do this either LOL

Wow...I never thought of doing that. I dread going to walmart to do our monthly grocery shopping. Not only does the walking around the store kill me but it is an hour drive each way (that's why we shop for a month or at least 2 weeks). I hate it, I end up in a bad flare everytime. But we gotta do what we have to do sometimes, we live in a small town and our grocery store here the prices are outrageous. I have 5 kids so there is no way I can shop here all month, I can't afford it. Great idea, thanks for sharing. Take care.
Gentle Hugs,
Shannon

I am very lucky in the respect that I too shop at Walmart and I ALWAYS use the skooters... would not be able to do it otherwise. But my real luck is that my husband goes with me and pushes a regular cart. I can fill up my basket and he will off load it into his cart and he's even there to reach the items on the top shelf for me, load the groceries in the car and then haul them into the house. Flares are bad enough when they come on by themselves. Sure don't want to cause one and just being in Walmart can do that for me.

Thank You to my Dear Husband of 30 years.

Oh just the thought of Walmart makes my skin burn! I havent used the scooters, but I think if I must go to walmart in the future, I will. I try to do just a little shopping at a time on my own otherwise hubby goes along to make sure i dont kill anyone!

I went to walmart with dh and he kept singing "the lil old lady from pasadina go granny go granny go!" Made me so mad I havent used a scooter since.  The last time we went to wally world I tripped on a rock coming from the bus stop and did a faceplant in the dirt.  I still have the bruises from then and its been like 3 weeks! I think it takes me longer to heal with me being diabetic  oh and I fell off the deck when I got dizzy last week.  Dh tells me Im a menace to myself.  Unfortunenatly I have to agree with him skull shocked
