My worst nightmare came true…..

Pedestrian Crossing

On my way home from the school run this morning I pulled up at the crossing in my wheelchair, as I do every morning we “walk” to school. HOWEVER, today wasn’t like a normal day, today my electronic brakes failed, and a wheeled out into the road. Luckily it was only around 50/75cm (but that’s too much) and cars went round me as I frantically tried to go backward onto the path, which just wasn’t happening.

It made me think how incredibly lucky I was, when I thought about what else could have happened, it could have been fatal. It was 8:45am, the middle of the school run/rush hour traffic. We know from experience that cars don’t always stop for things in the road at those lights (rip Moo’s pink METAL water bottle that she dropped one Friday on the way home from school) as they are simply going too fast or are distracted.

I know I keep pushing my link for my gofundme, but I realised today how important the new chair is, not just for my mobility, but for my safety. I understand people cannot necessarily afford to donate, but if you could share my link, or send me info of charities/people who may be able to help me it would be appreciated!

Lots of love
