persephone Posted December 29, 2004 Report Share Posted December 29, 2004 I'm 23. I feel like I'm a caged a animal. I'm home from University and my parents won't let me out to do ANYTHING in case I faint. Because I can't walk round the shops wihtout starting to ache/feel faint etc, they just won't take me. Full stop.But back at Uni, the lovely people I lived with got me a wheelchair from the red cross and took me about in that when I was too ill to walk. Atlesat I was getting fresh air that way! And seeing something other than the same four walls of my room.So, whose way is right, in your opinion? My mum and dad seem to be in denial, and won't even hear of a wheelchair. They'd rather I stayed in the warm and didn't risk going out on a bad day like today when I'm very achy and faint.But I would rather go out in a chair, as I couldn't hurt myself really, and would get some contact with the outside world...What should I do? I can understand why my parents are worried, but I need to have a life! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
