Kristy Goosman Hughes My first impression was, What a stupid picture! Loren Worthington I like those old 70 pound Wheelchairs.
” Kara Ayers Ouch…literally hurts to see:/ what year is it!? That way they can’t run away from me quite so fast J James Shoemaker …really, a hospital transport chair?
Turning round and saying that in the long run you can't be with someone with genetic defects but hey lets' still date and have 'fun', is not going to go down well. There's nothing more mortifying than having your wheels stuck in a door frame. Often people worry about things like: will they have to help us with personal care (the answer to that is no, if we need it we will have help in place already).
We love spontaneity as much as the next person, however unless you know 100% that your idea is wheelchair friendly, then it's best to press pause and phone to double check first.4. Especially if we are in an older model wheelchair which has no seatbelt. If we have asked/trusted you to push us, don't ruin it by letting go down a slope; you may find it entertaining but we will get blisters trying to regain control.6. Plenty of wheelchair users take parts in sports adapted for them such as horse riding, basketball, tennis. If you have questions it's best to get them out in the open rather than dwelling on them.8. Many wheelchair users enjoy a very healthy sex life.9. They've been there for us through the laughter and tears of the previous relationship, and picked us back up from it.
We felt it important to offer some insight into “women in wheelchairs” for future features, which we hope you will continue!
