    Hello, everyone. My first time posting here.

    I don't really need one. It's more because I want it, than need it.
    I started going to a gym, and my leg does hurt a lot, but not to a point I NEED a cane, just muscle aches.

    Is it in a way non-ethical or insulting for me to go out with a cane, that I don't necessarily need?

    I'm more of a rude/jerk person type, where I don't really care at all what people think about me, and I don't want to explain myself to anyone why I use it.

    I don't think on using it all the time, just when I have a really strong muscle ache where it's hard to walk.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Forget cornflakes, sugar puffs etc and only eat porridge for breakfast. Washed down with water.

    And start wearing bib and brace trousers. Improves your posture no end and really helps deal with back and muscular pain.

    You look like a tellytubby but the improvement is great.

    And if you do need a cane get yourself down the scrapyard and pick up a titanium knee joint to make the handle from. Crematoriums come and weigh them in after the flames have done their work.

    A cane has another useful purpose; whacking badly behaved children. Bad behaviour in children and grown ups has increased since the bleeding heart goody goodies banned six of the best of the cane, birch, ruler, gym shoe etc.in schools

    My doctor has a sense of humour.

    Because I had a cancer scare a few years back, I now have to have hospital checkups twice a year, I am also about 3 stone over weight, so the doc said join a gym & I will see you in 6 months, so after 6 months back at the hospital and I hadn’t lost so much as a Pound,

    After the weigh in I told the doc I had joined a gym (little fib) he said “you should try going when it’s open you fat #######” :(

    Our music teacher had a rack of 6 canes varying in thickness, he let you choose which one, if you pulled your hand away the punishment doubled, can you imagine the snowflake generation letting their little darlings go through this.
