New wheelchair for 30 minutes.

Last friday finally the wheelchair I have been waiting for since february arrived my happiness was short lived as soon as I sat in the chair.

The seating is adjusted so you sit slumped back with legs stuck out in front at a strange angle, bad for me as it causes spasms.

The wheels are too far back which makes moving round in the chair impossible plus its a heavy chair.

So all in all useless, but I did tell my case manager and the advisor in february that it was not the chair for me but they would not listen.

According to my advisor it was a great chair and she thought it was very comfortable. I told her to order it for herself and get me a chair I could sit in without pain.

Is MS a magnet for incompetence and shirkers? How disabled does a person have to be to be believed when requesting necessities?

Or is it because MS is not as highly publicized as HIV or cancer?

I must agree with PB.

Most people are not very empathic.
