Me and my wheelchair

I have mixed feelings about my wheelchair ♿️ I don’t like the term ‘wheelchair bound’ because it sounds so negative and as if my wheelchair is a problem. My wheelchair isn’t a problem, on the contrary actually! My wheelchair gives me the freedom to get around on my own, change position and even control my iPad. I’m very grateful to have my electric wheelchair but let’s be honest... it’s not exactly a beautifully designed item 🙄 Even though it’s an important part of my everyday life it’s often something I try to hide in pictures. It’s not because I’m ashamed of it in any way, I think it’s more about me wanting to be seen as me - as a person - and not me as the woman in a wheelchair 😊
