I get to go to the exhibit hall for a major assistive technology conference. Hopefully, I will get a chance to ask some interesting questions. And I'm always up for technology stuff.
I'm taking a wheelcchair. I can stand and walk pretty well now, but standing for more than 10 minuts increases pain a lot. Though I don't want to explain this stuff, I'm taking the chair to avoid an awful flare.
I've created a one sentence summary if people I know ask what happened: "I'm recovering from surgery, and dealing with a painful nerve condition." I wouldn't even include the nerve condition part, but "normal" people probably would be completely fine by now, and not need the chair.
I'm feeling cynical today. Sorry i'ts coming through in my writting.
