Dealing with people who are unaccepting of mobility aids
I have cp and use a rollator. I'm increasingly finding things more difficult even though I'm only in my early thirties. I really want a mobility scooter. The kind that folds and and be transported easily. My dad is furious I want one and shouts at me for talking about it. I find it very difficult to go out and have become very isolated. I just want to be able to move around better. I have no idea why he is so against them. I think he thinks I'm lazy or something or he is ashamed. My mum is somewhat supportive but wont openly disagree with my dad. I really think he will stop talking to me if I get one. How do I handle this situation?
