So *excited bounce* I've done it. Bought a power wheelchair. It's due to arrive tomorrow.
Knowing my depressive self as I do, I've been waiting since choosing it on Friday for a wave of 'ain't it awful' to break over me (after all, I'm still - just! - at the age where I'd hoped to be buying pushchairs not wheelchairs) but it hasn't happened. I'm feeling 100% positive about it and can't wait to get 'out on the road'. Well, on some rather quiet pavements to begin with, perhaps.
What brought this on?
First and foremost, reading this article on part-time wheelchair use by Sue Pearkes. I really do urge you to read it and pass it on as widely as you can.
