Re: Scooter update :) - Mama
With me it wasn't a case of giving in. Spurs and osteoarthritis do not improve. They worsen. I swore all my life I would not become a burden in any way to my family if possible. Pushing someone in a wheelchair or transporter is a PIA and don't let anyone tell you is isn't. It interferes with what they want to do and how long they would like to stay somewhere. No one has to keep asking me if I'm tired yet, or if I want to be pushed, or if I need to rest for awhile. My husband has COPD and my son is no spring chicken anymore either at 54. Jane has her own health problems and should not be pushing anyone. The scooter frees me and them from these concerns. I did it for them as well as myself. Riding these scooters are as close to walking on your own as you can get. It frees both the disabled person and those who are around them. I can ride as long as everyone wants to stay somewhere.
It's not giving up, it's taking responsibility for myself.
