Every version of Adobe Acrobat allows editing, it's just not free.
Adobe Reader, which is free, does not allow editing.

Hi there .o/

You may be able to edit your document with LibreOffice Draw, which is free.

Note that it doesn't give you the PDF format under its save options (at least not in the current versions as far as I know) but you do have the option to Export as PDF under the File menu.
Also, it likely won't be as "user friendly" to use as if you had the original document in a word processor, but for minor stuff it might be enough.

Otherwise, it would probably be best to convert it to Word. If the document doesn't contain any sensitive/confidential information, I'd advise to use some online converter such as smallpdf.com for example. And if you need to do that on a more regular basis or don't want your documents to be uploaded anywhere, then get some freeware converter.

Free but not fully usable. I've been filling out forms for years.

This does work, using libreoffice write, you can open, edit, and export as a PDF that opens right up in a PDF reader with no issue.

Edit: seems kind of strange that it will open a PDF, but doesn't save as a PDF.

You find a totally free program isn't fully functional on all aspects of a service?
Not me! And while you can do some form filling on newest Adobe Reader again it is not fully functional.
