Wheel Chairs and emotions : Thoughts requested -
Dances With Wheels posted a new topic: Greeting my fellow gimps, border gimps and otherwise alternatively locomotive folks, I am currently commissioned to write up an essay and I am looking for some input. I won't use any direct quotes, names etc unless you give me the ok. Basically, I've been coming across recently a good deal of post about either A) I *HATE* my wheel chair, or B) The WORLD hates my wheel chair C) Because of my chair, I HATE being out in the world. As I understand the issue is complex and we all roll our eyes at the "accessibility" or lack there of the world, it does strike me that "chair hate" CAN be seen in a broad sense an aspect of self hate/body issue/esteem issue etc. So I am looking for some brave folks who can tell me (in no more than 100 words or so) what they LIKE about their chairs. Then maybe your thought on the "hate chair as extension of other esteem issue". I am hoping to open up my understanding on this curiosity of mine and would like your thoughts.... - GimpGirl Community
