As we adjust to our new (disabled) life here in Meaford, I'm quickly learning all the things that are involved in living in a wheelchair. Virtually all the friends we run into say something like: "You're looking great!" It's nice to have such a positive reaction, but in fact it's all very difficult, challenging and demanding. I'll try not to sound too negative, but every now and then I'll point out a few of these challenges.
This is the truck beside us when we were out yesterday, about 3 feet short of the space I'd need to unload. We end up backing out and blocking the aisle while I get loaded. This says nothing about people who don't have the permits to use these spaces in the first place.
