A couple of weeks ago there was an episode where 'Izzy' explained to the Windass's new adopted daughter that even though she uses a wheelchair she can stand up and walk a little bit which confuses people and some people think shes faking.
My dad said 'thats just like Carrie that it is'. My mum replied 'Shes got the same condition as Carrie you idiot'
I thought it was a great line to put into the show becuase there was a lot of comments on facebook during the 'tram crash' week when 'Izzy' stood up at the bar in the pub that she wasnt really disabled.
I hope that people watching it and hearing that she can stand and walk a little will help people to understand that alot of wheelchair users can stand and even walk a little. I had a horrible experience where I had to walk down some steps and my friend carried my wheelchair down becuase there was no access route and some girls shoulted really horrible stuff to me about being a fake.
It would be nice if there was a little storyline about Izzy and her condition like maybe her needing surgery or having a fall or something. I'm starting to feel they've put her in the show to have the token disabled person but its not actually acheiving anything.
