I don’t use any kind of mobility aid (though I’d probably benefit from one), so I sometimes question if I’m deserving of accessible spaces. For example, if I ever wanted to go to an event like a concert, I probably wouldn’t be able to get accessible seats. I can walk, but I can’t walk or stand for very long and I really struggle with stairs. But since I don’t rely on a wheelchair, I wouldn’t want to take a spot from someone who really needs it or get in trouble for not “needing” an accessible seat. A lot of times, I end up deciding it’s not worth the fuss and I just don’t do it. But each time I have to decide something based on whether my illness will allow it, a piece of my heart breaks. So, if anyone has advice on how to navigate the gray areas of accessibility, I’d love to hear it!
