I have a 6 month temporary handicap placard after having severe chest pain from my Pulmonary Embolism back in April. It expires the end of November. I have felt all the symptoms of fibro since my PE and was diagnosed with Fibro recently. I struggle to walk much at all, especially when I have to take our light rail to school. The walk even with the handicap parking at the park and ride is 5-10 minutes. Without the handicap would be a small hike. I wanted to look into getting a permanent one when the temporary one runs out. Is this hard to do for fibro patients? Those of you that have one, did you have a tough time with your doctor and/or the DMV? Is it really necessary for me to have one. Just walking around the grocery store can cause a severe flare and if I'm in the middle of a flare, forget it. If I'm having a good day I try not to use it as I feel guilty but I think it would be beneficial to have one on bad days. Your thoughts/concerns/advice? Thank you.
