So... I don't want to surprise/shock any of you all if you see me using this at Fitbloggin.
I don't always need it, but certain things like traveling and sitting down for long periods of time exacerbate my lower back pain. Lately, I have either had this or my big umbrella with me when travelling just in case.
I freaked out a little while ago about how people would handle seeing FGvW with a cane. Kelly/@CurvyFitGirl reminded me that I can't control how people react. But please don't be too worried if you see me using this prop. I assure you that I am fighting every day to get through this.

(2) I am actually an introvert. Sometimes I need some quiet or a good cry. Fitbloggin is an emotional place. But when I am out an about I am good for hugs.
(3) I back dat ass up. Beware. (Ask @DubyaWife.
