    I'm born with a cyst in my cerebellum, which make my balance suck.

    A good thing at least, is i can walk sort of normally like other pedestrians.

    But if I experience uneven terrain or obstacles along the way, i sometimes need support like someone's shoulder or hand, so i don't fall over.

    Other than having to deal with my issues, i live sort of independently in a nice residence with staff to help me 24/7 if needed, and nice residents to talk and have fun with :-D

    When I could walk ! It did make something's easier. But now that I'm much older than you. I have to use a power wheelchair and that has made something a lot better. But I can't go to Family gathering at my brother's house 😭

    I recently lost the ability to walk! Well about 75% of the time! Due to a Inflammatory situation feet and knees swell and hurt to much to walk! It's very frustrating and doing things you used to do like cooking or dishes or just cleaning! Using the bathroom is one of the hardest things to do! But thanx to your video and the ideas you put up.I will utilize to make my life better! Thank you so much!

    Oh my god you are a sweet patient angel for taking the time to explain this to the idiots who didn’t get it from the first video. You rock!
    I wish people weren’t so judgemental and let people live their lives. My disability is much less visible than yours but I feel like you kind of share some of the issues of the invisible disability crowd-people thinking you’re faking it, getting dirty looks for using accessible areas, etc. It’s such a pain in the ass.

    I currently use a walking stick, but will have to transition to a powered wheelchair soon.
    I plan on adding an attachment to my chair, so that I can mount my stick and have it with me when needed.
    🤔 Is there a reason you are not using both, in a similar fashion?

    • Wheels2Walking
      Wheels2Walking  5 days ago

      I always keep a crutch in the car with me but I’ve never considered strapping it to my chair. Probably because I drive my car everywhere and thus I have my crutch with me. However, if I didn’t drive I’d probably come up with some sort crutch mount on my wheelchair.

    People can be super petty at times, my mother gets flack for having a disabled pass for parking 'even though she can walk.' What people don't know is she has severe neuropathy, meaning she can't feel anything but searing pain in her legs and feet. Worse, she can't tell if she damages her feet either, not without a close inspection, or until gangrene sets in. People love to get offended on behalf of others too much, often to the _detriment_ to the people they think they are protecting. Most of the time, if there's a normal parking spot next to the handicap spaces, she'll take those instead, to leave them free for those who need the extra room to unload mobility device anyhow.
    Addendum: People should probably also consider that some people who require a mobility device, but can function without it are recovering too. And forcing themselves to walk versus use a chair or scooter could set that recovery back, or even make things get worse. It does you no good to try and walk around after a hip replacement, just for you to topple over and break the other one because you didn't wait and recover your strength like the doctor ordered.

    I agree using a wheelchair is better that walking but sometimes I think some kids that are in wheelchairs wish they could do anything anyone without a wheelchair can do like swimming so they would be sad about that

    Greetings Crutchboi! I was wondering why you don't figure out a mount for your crutch on the back of your wheelchair (for travel)? Wouldn't that be the best of both worlds? I'm sure they have collapsible forearm crutches that might not be no too obtrusive. And they make tons of accessories for the purpose of carrying crutches. Anyway, I was just wondering and thanks for the great videos!! Debra

    People do not see how stand can hurt even short time. Since having a disability though arthritis in my knees I see it different myself.
    I use a walker at moment I can not go far. I have been thinking of getting a wheelchair when I go shopping for hours which I can not do now. At moment I can only shop for hour at the most and sore next couple days. I live on my own so I need to be mobile to get my meals. My physio said no which stop the government paid for it. I can paid for the one will not pull apart to put in car.
    Just going to bank, post office and line up to be seen. I need to have someone with me to line up or pick a place not busy.

    Thank u for this video. I've been debating getting mobility aids for the fact I get warn out and long outtings means I will be out of commission the next day or longer also likely in pain. I always thought a person I a wheelchair is just an inconvenience but so its not worse then sitting down to regain energy. I also am in college now and the walking is a lot. I think next doctor visit I'm going to ask if I should start using one.

    I'm in a wheelchair myself so I understand all of the situations your in let me just say for the people that don't understand what it's like to be disabled it's not fun by any means but there is one thing a lot worse than that & it is having to justify yourself and the equipment that we use on a day to day basis we know what we are doing to make our lives easier its not up you guys to understand

    Question from someone considering different options for myself as I have Ehler's Danlos Syndrome and my mobility is waning. When you do the demonstration of using a kitchen chair to go from your wheelchair to the bathroom, as a person who can walk without a crutch (standy boi!), could you also just stand and use the bathroom and then leave and return to your wheelchair? Or is that a lot more difficult just because there's not much to hold on to or? This video is awesome, ps. I'm so nervous to start using mobility aids because I "don't look sick" and my personal favorite, "you don't need crutches! Crutches are for people who can't walk! I saw you walk in here! You're fine!" that I got from my doctor last week -.-, but literally most days I can make the walk to school, but the last half of the walk coming home is super painful, and there are a LOT of times where I'm legitimately not sure I'm gonna make the last two blocks home and have no way to do so.

      Spinal cord injury = paralysis = paraplegic = two limbs don’t work properly (my legs) among other secondary things.

    Some constructive criticism:
    Knowing your audience can go a long way toward keeping them.
    Many, dare I say 'most', of your audience doesn't have the good fortune of being able to choose between the 2 options.
    When you say, "Walking sucks!", to a population who can never do that again you run the risk of coming off condescending or patronizing and alienating them.
    For most of us, your ability to stand and gait would be so overwhelmingly and positively life changing that saying "it sucks" has little, if any, positive resonance.

      chronic-rose 9 days ago

      it's not healthy when your legs don't work and cause extreme pain.. like he said??? you can break bones by falling from walking too much..is that healthy?

      it's also super not fun to be in extreme pain?

      you sound very young so I'll give you a pass, but you need to work on being less ableist

  • Angus Brown

    We had a teacher at my school who had some condition (Cerebral palsy, I think) which meant she was weaker in one half of her body. While she could walk, she opted to use a wheelchair instead. Similar reasons to yours. It does suck that people have to have it explained to them

  • SystemofEleven
    SystemofEleven 10 days ago +2

    There are days when I can walk for a few hours with minimal issues (though I will probably need a couple days to recuperate afterward). There are days where I wake up and my caregiver has to carry my sorry butt to the toilet that is literally ten feet away from my bed, because I don't even have the strength to crawl.
    There have been a large number of instances where I thought I was in good shape that day, decided to go out with just my cane, aaaaand collapsed on the sidewalk halfway to my destination. Or in the parking lot outside my apartment. Or on the floor at work. Or in the third aisle of the grocery store during a relatively short errand run. You get the gist.

    I don't go anywhere without my wheelchair anymore. Even if I think I don't need it, I know there's a massive risk involved if I need it later and don't have it. And I'm terrified of being stranded wherever I happen to fall. And anybody who wants to tell me I should just walk until I can't, can go suck an egg.

    Brilliant video! I’m a new chair user who can also walk but like you I experience a lot of pain and I’m not that stable on my feet. The amount of people who assume that I can’t walk because I have a chair is unreal. I just wanted to say your videos are an inspiration to me and others, keep up the good work 😁
