I use a guide dog and sometimes a long cane. I also had surgery so there are times walking is easy and other times I am in pain.

I have to use a walker because of Fibromyalgia. It isn't easy, but if I don't I get cabin fever. Plus, it's the only way for me to walk my dog right now.

You didn't say what kind of disability you have. But my husband has CP. Here is what he found helps him get up and moving. He has one of those old clocks that chimes the quarter hour, When the clock chimes he gets up. He relies on me quite a bit to help. When I'm doing videos I think he can do, I ask him to join me. He can do most of the chair exercises on SP, ok not really, he has limited movement but can do something that resembles them. When I go hiking, my love, I pick places where the trail is smooth and I start and finish at the same bench under the same tree. DH "walks" a ways down the trail and back and reads his book till I finish my walk.

We do take safety precautions, we both carry our phones we have an apps on our phones so we can always see where the other is. If his app isn't moving and he isn't at the bench I can go find him.

I guess the main thing is find what works for you and go from there. As was mentioned earlier there are chat threads for just about every thing. Find one that is for you and they will help you find what works.

you can also google walking with ...and fill in your disability and see what options come up

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

Do we have a place for people with disabilities. We need to walk and exercise for health, strength, weight and improvement. I have an Alta. Find the hourly reminders helpful. Also goal settings. Could use friendly communication. Thanks!
