I Am Totally Embarrassed……

Last year it was so easy to get up from a sitting to a standing position. Now it has been almost a year and it is becoming increasingly difficult to stand without grabbing on to something (hopefully sturdy) to propel myself into a standing position.
Case in point; I had to stand in order to receive recognition at a church gathering and it was a difficult fete to just stand to walk up front.
Every since my knees have been giving me problems as I’ve stated before each encounter has been terribly embarrassing.
Is there an exercise or position that I could utilize in order to help me propel my body into a stance without the obvious embarrassing moments.
The physical along with the physiological impact on my mind is so hard.
I’m open for any suggestions, thank you.
Jennifer
