My husband used to take people wheelchair abseilling and they made him try it first…he has never been so scared in his life!!
The youngsters loved it,they very rarely ever get the ‘thrill’ of doing something that feels frightening and risky,I would rather be a boring adult!!!
As far as the swimming goes Schoey you will never know til you try. The benefits may outweigh the cons.
One thing I would say though is to go first and check out the changing rooms for space and temperature,as you know what your physical needs are and how you will react to the temp.
If you do go look carefully at what you wear so they are the easiest things to get in and out of…especially when when coming out.
Also many pools have equipment to get you in and out and pool staff are often inexperienced in how to use it,so check its suitable for your needs and in working order.
Can you tell I used to risk assess swimming facilities!!!
Go on give it a try
