What to ask a podiatrist?

Debbie,

As I get more comfortable toting my cane – and remembering to tote it! – I'm enjoying a similar response from people ahead and to the sides of me: they're eager to be of help, and (important to a guy like me who's still a little about my need for help) without being overbearing! They're just trying to be good people.

Ray - I was at a family cookout in MD today, at my sisters house with 4 sibs I hadn’t seen in 18 months, and some next generation. There were 2 unsafe (for me) steps to get in the house from the patio. No railings, and with my PN I can’t even do a curb unassisted, but I could hold the door knob and do Ok by myself for those 2 steps. But each of the 4 times I tried to go in and out, some kind soul would insist on holding the door open for me. They just didn’t realize I needed the door closed so I could hold onto the knob until I was on the top step, then I could open and go through the door! They got the gist of it after seeing a few times how the closed door was a tool, but I felt blessed how they all wanted so much to help!
