I am having a lot of bone pain due to the softening of my bones. I have been told that I am to NOT even THINK about kneeling or sitting on the floor. Too much stress on my hips esp the one they took bone out of for the first neck surgery. So HOW do I manage to get things picked up off the floor other than continually griping at husband and the kids? Any ideas are welcome. I am SO frustrated by this limitation and cannot tolerate this much longer. I am also having a lot of burning pain when anything touches my skin - even clothing. It makes it even harder to try to do ANYTHING, so if anyone has solutions for that they are appreciated also. Thanks!
