I'm a copd sufferer and AF and heart failure. Few other bits but have had to take to my wheelchair, as my heart didn't want to go shopping, but I did. So the nurses wonderfully said if you don't want to stay home and not go out get on your wheels!!! And they were right. I'm learning how to live anew and enjoy!!!

    Welcome to the community @irishmeg :) It's great to have you on board! 

    How's your weekend been going so far? 

    Thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. We've heard from many people who've found that using a wheelchair has enabled them to be more independent. It's good to hear that it's been a positive experience for you. What were your main worries about using a wheelchair to get around?
