    My family and I were at church recently, and an acquaintance of mine asked my son with FA why he was using his wheelchair that day instead of his walker. She was concerned and meant well, but he felt like it was a personal question and didn’t want to answer.

    That’s a tough one, because not everyone understands having to use multiple assistive devices depending on the situation.
