A lightweight stick, walking frame or crutches might help. Some ramblers use ski sticks or walking poles. Wheelchairs save a lot of energy even if you are able to walk, and enable people with M.E. to go further. Walking is easier than standing for many people with M.E.; if this is the case for you, try walking on the spot or moving your legs around instead of standing still. Spreading salty sand on wet or icy steps will make them less slippery.
