None of my conditions are that far gone yet.
I always had patellar displasia, as it's linked to genetics, but I didn't treat it until last year and used to push the limits. About a year ago a friend of mine got quite surprised to see me picking a table that would be supposed to be heavy to a point that he didn't feel comfortable to move it by himself.

I just hope I can get a Model 3 before they are.
I'd much rather fit hand controls to an ICE-powered car with a manual transmission instead of switching to an EV.
