In which I am a non person

HUMPT!!!! I had to use a wheelchair for the very first time at the grocery store. I didn't want to but ya know pain dictates what you do. People didn't look at me, asked John questions and if they did design to talk to me they looked over my head. I ended up getting totally narked and saying....Hello I'm down here, not deaf, blind or anything of that nature. You can talked to me, ask me to move etc. I know I made several people uncomfortable but that's their problem not mine.

I HATED being in a wheelchair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sighhhh.

I time I had a really bad siatic pain, so bad that I couldn't walk for long periods, and I rode in one of those electric wheelchairs, I don't know why it seems if you arein one of those you have a forcefield around you and you can't be spoken to.

Hugs my friend!

Some people are such dopes! I think it is great that you said something...otherwise people don't clue into their behavior. I hope you are feeling better soon and can kick their butts ;)

Vanda... I would also like to know why you are in a wheelchair and what is the pain all about. You sound like such a nice person that I'm very sorry to hear that you are in such pain.

And I wanted to tell you that your Spike IS cute!
