    Welcome to CC. Congrats on walking.
    You mentioned you have low bp.
    If it's low like when you first get up, or after eating.
    You might want to talk to your Dr. about the medicine
    ProAmatine (midodrine hydrochloride) Tablets
    Several of us on CC are taking them for low bp.
    Post often.

    drink 8 oz of water before you get up that may help.

    Hello,

    I am in the southwest part of Georgia. I am the same level injury as you. You'll find that there are many things you can do and should lead a fairly normal life.

    Good luck,
