First thing to say is that I can walk BUT I use a stick and crutches when I’m struggling… in a couple of weeks, we’re planning on visiting my step-daughter at Uni and my husband has just suggested buying a wheelchair!
After overcoming my initial urges (to cry/sceam/puke etc. - please don’t be offended if you’re in a chair, I’m sure you remember this feeling) I realised he’s probably right and it’ll be difficult going to a town I don’t know well and I struggle to walk any distance. He’d spotted a cheap fold away lightweight job and I’ll try to post a link.
Question is, who’s used one of these and is it ok?
I’m quite petite so I don’t need anything too sturdy and it really is intended for occassional use only, thi one can live in the car boot quite easily.
Obviously we hadn’t intended to spend too much at this stage as I truly hope I won’t “need” a chair for while yet. hopefully this is going to be for occasional use only.
