25 years ago when my #chronicpain issues were first diagnosed, I was sent back to college in a wheelchair.

I could walk (with intense pain) so I stopped using it due to the pressure if people who didn't need one.

Biggest mistake of my life. I could have avoided so much suffering and pain and loss of quality of life. I'll never know for sure if I'd be better today having used one.

To all my non-disabled followers please spread this message. #AmbulatoryWheelchairUsersExist just because someone uses a wheelchair doesn’t mean they can’t walk or move. Wheelchairs are mobility aids & they are used for so many different reasons! Disability is not a binary.
Do you use glasses? Do you assume all people who wear glasses have the same prescription as you? No of course not! So why would you assume all wheelchair users are totally paralysed? Or all guide dog owners are completely blind? Disability is diverse & we are all different!
Disabled people use mobility aids like crutches, canes, wheelchairs, assistance dogs & walkers for so many different reasons. But primarily to assist their mobility & independence! Using a wheelchair can give freedom of movement to someone who can only walk unaided sometimes.
