I got polio when I was very young and stuggled for years walking with braces. When I turned thirty my doctor told me that I needed to start using a wheelchair and I resisted furvently. Eventually I decided that maybe I should just give the wheelchair a try. I discovered that I had so much more mobility in a chair, I felt great! I was able to do things I never could with the use of my legs, its opened up a whole new world for me.
