Wheelchairs

Well, at long last I have decided to give in and accept a wheelchair. I’ve been told that due to the poor state of my hips that I need to take a load off of them as much as possible. I resisted for a long time because I wasn’t interested in the hassle, and stares that would come with being in a chair. I can walk, but only short distances, and slowly. It’s become such a detriment that I can’t refuse anymore. I am slow at the grocery, and have to stop and sit several times. My poor husband has to adopt a snails pace to walk with me, and I just hold him back. I have to decline to go to events like fairs, races, or places like the mall or the park because I can’t walk all over the place and I never know if I’ll be able to find a seat. So I got approved and set up a fitting for an ultralight wheelchair. I’m hoping to look at the Quickies, Flights, or Invacare ultralights. I have to have the ultralight in order to be able to lift and propel it without dislocating my joints. I’ll update when I know more!
