I found out a few months ago that there was going to be an abilities expo only a few hours from where I live. I was super excited. I'm excited because even though I've asked questions about mobility aids here like forever ago I'm finally getting the ball rolling and thought the expo might be a great place to get some hands on info/experience that might help me in choosing my first mobility aids (manual chair and forearm crutches).
Have any of you ever been? Was it worth it? I know they have free loaner scooters but getting in the door will require more walking than I can do which means I'll possibly be in bed in pain for 2-3 days afterwards. But if it's it worth it I will find a way to make it work.
lipomyelomeningocele, tethered cord, nerve damage began as a young adult, still have lots to learn about living with SB!
