In the last five years I have cared for three wheelchair users on a medium term basis and many other wheelchair bound clients.
One of my main struggles is feeling really angry when I get prevented from doing something or carrying out a plan or goal which is important to me.
Whilst this picture shows a working person as a part of group. When you lose your mobility such as the strength to stand independently, there are so many life limiting circumstances that occur.
I met some people who had cereal palsy, who used a chair for their entire lives, and others who had successful careers at Rolls Royce or even just average careers like in a casino.
Plenty of people with mobility problems have to face each day, knowing they need to reply on another pair of legs from a non disabled adult to help them with their daily lives.
And the frustration can become infuriating when someone deliberately or unintentionally prevents access.
I’ve been pretty angry in my life on many occasions and as a theme over recent years, and I have really appreciated hearing the stories of disabled individuals whom I supported when their goals were stopped or just the build up of small disappointments about things that were forgotten.
