      With a progressive illness, there is a wide variety of assistive devices that we will require or choose to use. Since it gets worse over time, one device becomes obsolete while depending on the next.

      Personally, I am still in this stage between a walker and wheelchair. When I do you use my wheelchair,someways I feel bad or like I have to act like I am more disabled than I am. Not saying that I tell people I need my chair more but things like choosing not to stand up and adjust my pants or something of that matter. I do this to avoid questions or stares.

      Have you ever experienced a situation like this? How did you find yourself handling the situation?

      I am in the same boat. It’s crazy what a difference it makes when people see someone using a wheelchair vs. A rollator. Most days I would prefer the wheelchair!
