I couldn’t say it better if I tried👩🏼‍🦼

It says it all!

I came across a post on Instagram today describing how some wonderful young ladies (I have the same problem, but I’m neither young or beautiful – and we cannot forget young men who have the same problems as we do) have people asking them why they are in a wheelchair when they are quite clearly ambulatory. This is her post…

Some of you may not understand what ambulatory means, this is a good summery taken from https://accessiblerach.co.uk/what-is-am-ambulant-wheelchair-user/

What is an ambulant wheelchair user.

Next time you see someone stand from their wheelchair, or someone who looks “normal” sits in a disabled seat on the bus, think about what they may be masking, the pain, the anxiety, the depression, they may have ASD and be in a wheelchair to keep them safe, without asking them, you just don’t know. Just because we can use our legs sometimes, does not mean we are not disabled or that we do not need a wheelchair, a bus seat, or a parking space. Please think before you speak!

My partner thought he was hilarious!
