    The use of a walker
    SaintIvy posted:
    Thank You to all, who responded to my issue of using a walker. In my Post, I hit the wrong buttons on my computer and the post was not complete. My Rheumatologist ,who is now my old Rheumatologist since I have dropped her, does know about Fibromyalgia. Except, that she lacked the total comprehension and lack of Compassion that she needed in treating me. Yes, I will be looking for another Rheumatologist very soon ! You all, who responded to my question, have made my Soul Smile and now I have the confidence to walk with my walker. Thank You All ! Love and Light from SaintIvy.

    Good luck on your search. This is a very stressful thing to do. I've been seeking a new PDR for 2 yrs. too many issues is the standard reply. I feel trapped. Ask a lot of questions and when you make your appt make sure to ask them to set aside enough time. 15mins isn't enough. It's a 2 way interview. If they don't introduce themselves and shake my hand or make eye contact there off my list right off the bat.
