I have help from my friends but it isn't 24/7. Luckily I had bought several frozen diners, I didn't feel like cooking and really couldn't besides pain I couldn't bend over or twist. Then there was the problem of my dog Ty, there were times I couldn't put him out at night so I bought the dog training pads and he is using them. The next problem was I can't bend over so a friend gave me a ride to Ace Hardware and I bought a Pik Stik. I can pick things up off the floor or off high shelves, this is the best tool I have right now, wish I had bought one sooner.
