Hi everyone hope your all wellI
I currently do a small amount of walking at home if you can call it that! Every shuffle is so painful and slow. The problem I now have is that the wheelchair i have is difficult for my family to push me around for long, (I’m not the lightest) so when going out for day trips I take my boot scooter. Then starts another problem very difficult to now get on. And my legs slip off don’t have much control with them. Also my arms really ache and neck.
My wheelchair is from wheelchair services, and I think an electric one would be right for me now. But they won’t consider giving one if you can still walk.
I no that yes I can still stand up and shuffle a bit but don’t consider this walking at all. I spend most of my day in a chair.
I feel I’m stuck in the middle anyone else feel like this?
I find myself saying no I’ll stay in because I can’t do will the hassel , and putting people out and spoiling there day. Plus I no when I get back I’ll pay for the discomfort and all the effort with my scooter.
