So after my knees playing up for sometime and conitually geting worse and not knowing what's going to be done about it-if anything (waiting on ortho's to give me MRI results and decide if they will operate or leave me like i am-useless) i have bit the bullet and purchased a secondhand mobility scooter off ebay, as i cannot walk anywhere...shops taking kids to park nothing (and do not have a car/licence ).....So now all that worries me (For lack of better word) is how to cope with a few things and if any of you can offer me any advice/ideas etc it would be appreciated.
The things that are on my mind the most are:
Firstly getting over myself and my feelings....a 31 Yr old in a mobilty scooter etc....I wouldn't judge anyone else in a situation like mine, but yet i seem to be feeling uncertin i gues is the word myself.
Secondly and probably the bit thats going to get me the most is the comments & ridicule i'm sure to face from others. I think i need to have some sharp witty comebacks up my sleeve, or else knowig me it will be a case of verbal diarrhea in the form of choice words out of fustration.
So any takers on come backs? and/or ideas to getting over my own self.
