I have a lot of concerns about being a woman in a wheelchair. I am very concerned about my shoulders, my back, just my body wearing out and what that looks like. Even just pushing, like am I going to have to go from a manual wheelchair to power wheelchair? How is my body going to handle sitting for years, and years, and years and what does that look like? I’m nervous, I’m scared of my health. I’m very interested in people that have made it many more years than me, and what that looks like, and how I can get there. And that’s kind of why I struggle with my weight because I know that’s an added negative towards my future. And so, I just really worry. I worry that something goes wrong and I won’t feel it, like if something was wrong and I didn’t know. I just have a lot of concerns about my health for the future.
