it is my tun to be on wheels

So, it is my turn to start my life as i need.

For me, be on wheels is something wich really attracked me since many many years.

Since fews month, i spent lot of time ( i should say most of my time) to read, share , learn about biid and wannabe feeling.

And, there will be a moment that u have to say u: ''ok, go"

That is exactly what i did. So i went to rent shop to have a wheelchair ( basic one, but i love it because it is my first one). i decided to take it for 2 days.

As i can do it at home, and job not anymore, i decided to start in town far from home.

I arrived in this town, park my vehicule, and go ,out with chair.

WOOOW, let s go, it is my turn. This time is real, not a dream, not fiction. REALITY

How describe it, i dont have word: great is not enough. it is an unexpetable satisfaction to be on wheels. really.

I start at 11am. the first meters are little hard, it was the first time i drive it, so my ways are not really straight. That s why i choosed a park not to near form center, with not to much people too.

The first minut are WOOOW: i have spasms on my legs for the first 15 minuts: i mean really big spasms. so great feeling.

So spasms leave, and i can go on wheels.

First, it is not so easy that i expected : you need to have big arms to go on wheels ( maybe my wc is not the best, but, whatever, it s not so easy)

So, you will see that roads and sidewalk are never flat. correct right, correct left, never straight way ( for me at this time)

But feelings are here, really.

After less than 500 meters, i take moment for rest me.

I take some pictures near the lake..wow it is my turn , it is difficult to realise that i m on wheels and outside, with people. WOW

Some people have just a see and little smile.

Little children on stroller look at me , and seems to say '' why this adult is in stroller too"; it makes me smile.

I ride, i ride i ride...take picture of me in front of shop windows, woow, it s me, great!!

i still didnt realise.

Or i should say yes, i realize when blister come on my fingers: i knew that i have to take glovers, but i forgot it at home because of excitation.

And my arms become tired , i m on it since 2 or 3 hours.

so ok, i m ready, i decided to go to centrum.

I cross some people, but lot of them ''didnt see' me..that should be this that people on wheels say. i am invisble..cool....in fact not, it is not so cool. For me i choose it, so i dont be worried. but for those they didnt choose, i understand now how it can be diificult for them.

So have a tour on centrum, and go back to my park..woow, tired, my arms are just a big pain: but i dont worry, it is a really strange feeling, betwin pain and satisfaction. but great.

1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 blisters..ok next time glovers, for sure.

it is 5:30pm, woow,more than 6 hours on wheel for my first time ( and i think some 6 or 7 kilometers)

So it is time to go back home..

So the next day, i was come back. another this time, always near from lake: And this time with gloves on hands.
As roads and sidewalk were more flat and slic, i was better than th elast day before

Balance sheet for these first days: pain on my arm, blister on my finger ( think to take gloves!! )
, but stars in my eyes and in my mind. I NEED IT , for sure

So great experience ..unexpectable great....better that i ever dream, that i thought, woow.
Sure my story with wheels will nor be ended tomorrow

Canot wait for the next time

Interesting report! And not the slightest fear that suddenly any acquaintance, friend or even relative pops up in front of you?

No. i spent much time to choose town far from home, and wheelcahir friendly too. Maybe a day, i willnot disturb if i meet someone i know, but not yet at this moment. Maybe if i find a friend with biid like me, or real para, it will be easy for me: if we will see someone he knows, i am the para, and him the friend who try wheelchair, and i it s some one i know, he will be the para and i, the friend who try wheelchair. Simple no?
