The doorbell just rang. It was the Chesapeake man coming to collect my wheelchair. Who would have thought that a manual wheel chair would cost $6000. Leaving hospital in June I had ordered a wheelchair but cancelled the order as it became clear that I would walk again. So instead of my own wheelchair I have relied on a loaner which came due today.
I did not know he would be coming to collect my chair today. Should I let him have it? It is very useful for anything stressful or long, like voting day or taking the dog for a walk - yes I take my wheelchair!
I let him have my chair!
Therefore I have no crutch any more and have to walk everywhere - what better signal is there.
