Strollator and me
I can only walk 30 minutes per day.
While I can walk I do not need the strollator.
I cannot stand for very long, so I need to sit when I stop.
I bring my strollator for when I need to sit.
I also use my strollator when I need to be pushed.
When I travel I like to save my walking for:
* strolling around the town on my own, usually at the end of the day.
* places where I must walk, like rough tracks.
So, as much as possible I like to be pushed in the strollator at other times.
When I'm walking with someone else, I'd like them to push the empty strollator (because I also have problems with my hands and arms.)
