Going back to the comments about taking mum to the specialist......that's not possible because my physio
doesn't recommend my wheelchair and my rhemy doesn't know I have one (and is discharging me in March).
Also shocked sheepy at what the so called expert said about dislocations. I find it hard to communicate dislocations
and prefer to reset them myself. Considering the damage they did to your ankle I would have done the same.
I went out for a xmas meal with some of the autistics tonight. It was good except for 2 insensitive comments.
I went to the disabled toilet and asked who was next, my friend said 'you I guess' and the man standing next
to the toilet didn't say anything. While I was in there he told his friend 'the damned wheelchairs gone in now'.
I felt like saying to him 'this damned wheelchair did ask who was next before using the toilet'! I'm thinking
it's an accessible toilet for a reason, yes he was a pensioner and probably had a reason to use it. He shouldn't
have had a problem with me using it, could have said 'I was next as it happens' or something similar.
Another time I went to the disabled toilet I came out and the guy who winds me up at social groups was there.
I asked him 'to open the door please' in a polite way. His response 'no Alexis because you can walk'. I followed him
and had a go in front of the other 2 volunteers 'excuse me but dont make presumptions about my disability. I am
in this wheelchair because I dislocate my joints. Ask next time before making presumptions about my disability'.
I was really annoyed with him because he's had at least 5 opportunities to ask me why I need the wheelchair and was
there when I showed my other bendy friend my diagnosis letter. Also there's rumours going around that he is telling
others that 'I shouldn't be using the wheelchair because I can walk'.
