This got me thinking (you have now entered a field of land mines). Why don’t we have more creative ra wear.
I am not talking clothing but rather things I have been forced to use in my ra world on a daily basis that to put it bluntly look dreadful! No wonder we get discouraged living with RA. I mean, look at this thing! Dreadful…just dreadful! And here is my hate list: hand splints, elbow wraps and knee wraps (canes do have a lovely, wide variety to choose from). I would love to see some creative type out there invent a hand splint that I can “art” up if I desire. Heck I would be happy to be able to pick a color besides black or maybe white (I think one manufacturer makes it in white). What about blue, pink, purple, polka dots, stripes or anything I fancy.
I recently came across LemonAid Crutches, which seems to be doing something similar to that which you write about — they work just with crutches, though. Yes, canes we do have…and I’ve recently made it no secret that I want a Dr. House cane!
