Accepting an electric wheelchair
I recently purchased a Golden Technologies Literider Envy green power chair. Since I use various mobility aids (been using the walker pretty often), so it has been getting very hard to get around large places with just a walker. I attended an air show that involved a ton of walking, so my dad had me take my power chair. At first, I was embarrassed because I viewed wheelchairs are for those who are paralyzed, but when I saw ambulatory users my embarrassment was gone and I received compliments on my new chair. It helps me get around with less pain, less fatigue and my symptoms were not as bad. I can say that I accept my new mobility aid because it is a tool to help me get around. And I can enjoy events without paying the price later.
