The bigger the crowd or stimulation, the more assistance I need. At home I typically can get around my house with little or no aid. Simply walking from my car and into the gym, through a clear path with several people in my peripheral vision, or going to my weekly Bible study with just 5-8 ladies, in very routine surroundings, a cane is typical. The grocery store, a church service, an award ceremony a my child's school, places with a higher level of people interaction or greater volume of sights and sounds, and I'm at walker-level mental input. Still having doubled vision to my sides makes balance difficult in these settings as well.

to use bright colors and patterns that catch attention rather than trying to mute my disability into the background.

I'm I'm feeling sporty too. I learned the railing or padded bar across the front of my walker, what I've always called the back rest when using the walker as a chair, is technically called my "roll bar". Makes me think of a dune buggy out 4-wheeling! :)
This cane user, a walker pusher, a disabled woman (but no longer an in-valid), is who I am and how I function. I don't need to pretend my limits are different than they are. Joy and peace come with embracing, even celebrating, the broken.
I don't think I could ever go through with getting a tattoo, but if I did, how about we get these, Kendra?

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.- James 4

Perhaps you should screen your "select group" a little better!
