I feel really terrible right now. Last night my knees were hurting so bad my boyfriend had to to badically carry me to the bathroom and back because i couldn't walk. I really need money and normally my job because i work at a retail store as a cashier, involves standing and i had to sit in a chair as every customer asked what was wrong with me today. I haf to go home 3 hours early because i was afraid i wouldn't be able to get home if i stayed any longer because i had to drive myself to work myself. I have never had an experienced something like this before. I am having trouble coping with this. I felt so embarrassed.
So I basically had the same experience where my boyfriend had to carry me to the bathroom.🤦🏽♀️
The funny thing is that he is a bit shorter than me, so I had to get on his back but my legs is so long that it almost touched the ground even though he was carrying me😂 I felt like the shell of a turtle and we were giggling all the way there.
I know this doesn't help but I hope it at least made a laugh a bit. Find joy in the silly things.
Thank you for the story. It did make me smile. It is good that we have boyfriends willing to do things for us in time of need. Last night i was in so much pain i couldn't sleel and our apartment had flooded and it took all day for them to suck up the water... i was so exhausted from trying to help move things around and see what is damaged i was crying because of the pain at around 3 or 4 in the morning he got up told me to turn over and gave me a massage and held me. I dont know what i would do without him.
Talk to your store manager about getting a tall chair that will allow you to sit at a standing height and use it every day. Even on the good days. Then come up with a true but vague answer to give When people ask what’s wrong. I usually just say “I have a chronic pain condition and the - chair, cane, wheelchair- helps.”
I have been using a chair for my knees, but it hurts my back having to reach for the stuff on the counter and mabaging the computer for their payment method. Customers have said that i am lazy for sitting down and they are very inconsiderate of me and much more rude when im in a chair vs standing. So i stand when the chair hurts my back to much and i sit when my knees cant take standing any longer.
