Hi - I have given up on trying to do anything on my knees and I commend those of you that try. I call my house "the house of stools" because I have stools of all heights in almost every room in my house. It's impossible to cook without one, brushing teeth sitting down, dressing sitting down, feeding my cats sitting, laundry etc. etc. I live alone so it is important to be very cautious. As Kaylie said we just have to grin and bear it. I have learned many tricks to cope with this darn stuff but sometimes even the tricks are tough. Someone said too that walking at a pretty good pace is ok but then slowing down becomes a nightmare trying to balance and having that horrible feeling of maybe falling! On a silly, vanity note, I miss being able to wear high heels. But checking in on this wonderful site brings me peace, just reading everyones travails and knowing that I am not alone.
