hello all,

well, some of you know that i moved from littleton, co to englewood, co about a month ago or so and, it's been great so far but, for one thing indeed! i'm having to learn new routes and find my way back and forth from the bus stops and back to my place. my parents showed me when they were to help us move in but, it was only one time. i thought it seemed easy but, i have tried to do this successfully and, both times when i go on my own i get lost!

it's very frustrating that a person like me who is a confident traveler and a good one to have this difficulity. and, i have lived in this area for over 6 years. so, here's my question what do you do when you somewhat know the area but, you still don't? do you have a family teach this to you or have some mobility done through a state agency like dvr? what have any of you guys do when learjning a new route or area after you have moved there successfully and be confident in dioing this independtally?

also, i have a very hard times on putting on my cane tipe since i don't have strength ibn my hands so how can i put on my cane tips and replace the old ones easily and independtally?

thanks again and i will talk to you all soon!

from amy
