(Because I know how much you all love to hear me whine.)<br><br>
Thanks to permanent pelvic damage from stupid doctors who put me in the lithotomy position with SPD, I now have full blown Diastasis Symphysis Pubis. Its starting to tear so I have to be super careful and may end up in a wheelchair soon. Because of this I am now the proud owner of a little blue handicapped card to hand in my window. I actually am feeling pretty guilty about this. I feel like I'm not really handicapped like people with permantent disabilities, but at the same time I can barely walk anymore and the pain is unbearable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Oh, that hurts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> They almost sent me home with a cane and a handicapped pass after I had DS because I couldn't walk due to pubic pain, but something magically slipped back into place right before I was discharged and the pain almost completely subsided -- I hope something similar happens to you!

Heh, around here, the blue ones are permanent; they give you a red one if it's temporary ;-). Those are good for up to six months, but are renewable with a new form from the doctor's office. I've had them twice after knee surgery.<br><br>
Good luck! I hope that it doesn't get any worse!

I think it's set up that way -- the last month or two has to be awful so that during labor you're extra motivated to get the thing OUT!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

they don't give those out to all of us either <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> you have to have mobility issues, they often give them out to people who have had surgery or severe leg fractures knowing they will need them for a few months at most. People with disabilities won't look at you funny, we all don't look 'handicapped' on the outside either ....
