Go to chat. There is almost always someone there. Where it shows you add the only one on line is people reading the posts here, not those in chatty.

Re: Off-road mountain climbing wheelchair

As soon as they get the electric motor figured out and installed I'll see if I can get someone to show me how to get the information somewhere for you. It, as it is, wouldn't be safe on crowded trails. I use out mainly on my own property, off trail.

Re: Off-road mountain climbing wheelchair

Glyn, have you thought about adapting an ATV? Might be easier.
I use an ATV here in the Rockies. We put a special muffler on it so that it makes a lot less noise. At the moment we have a friend that is trying to adapt an electric motor to use on one.

Re: Advice Needed for Student Loan Discharge

Maybe you should talk to a psychiatrist. They would be willing to look into your non-obvious disability, and they are a md. I doubt that any respectable doctor though would be willing to sign the paper on just your say so. They either will need your records and then also do an evaluation, which coul...

Re: The Wheelchair Decision

Jeremy, Instead of a wheelchair, a small mobility scooter might be the thing. I know that many able body students use them to make it across campus at the university I taught at. There are some that fold up and are light weight. I'm really sorry that your mother has acted ashamed of your disability ...

Re: Help And Self Moderation

TiGgEr,
Thanks for the reminder. I know that sometimes I can do all the things you've mentioned. If a mod sees me doing any of them if they have a moment please pm me and let me know. You guys have a hard enough job without any of us regulars making it harder.

Re: Inspiration, hopefully.....

Yes Peacock, it is amazing what we can do when we decide to do it. We may be handicapped but with determination we aren't disabled. We are just able in a different way than others or for some of us different than we were before.

Re: Lack of Fulfillment/Quality of Life after becoming disabled

I understand your chemical sensitivity. It can be very hard to adapt. One thing I've done is remove as many chemicals from my house as possible. I clean my house totally with organic cleansers. My clothes are washed in an organic detergent. I've found that the fewer chemicals I'm exposed to on a reg...
