Once I said to a girl, come this way you can see what the ramped door is like, kind of joking around. She did, but just that once. It can be a very isolating thing at times, this stupid chair.
    I don't know what you can do about it. I don't know you that well, but if I was going to school with you I'd want to be your friend. I'm in school now and I have to say that the kids in my classes (except my math class) are very kind and inclusive to me. I have the most fun in my education classes, my classmates make sure I am able to see their presentations and that I have a clear pathway thru the aisles in this small classroom. Whenever there is a post (like this one) I always rack my brain to recall if I've ever felt slighted (I'm sure there have been instances) but even so, it doesn't really bother me. I'm just happy to be out and about. Anyway, I hope it gets better for you and Emi.

    I suspect it's the parent in a wheelchair thing. They're probably gossiping and making snap judgements based on their limited knowledge. My brother's neighbour is a hockey mom and switched to a local league this year - she is so sick of the politics and cliques ... obviously she's not included either.

    Your feelings are norm. Maybe have them over other than ice day?

    i've had this in school and when i was younger with my friends. but now if this happens in a social setting, i always make sure i have a drink in my hand, lol and then quietly sip in a corner and listen to conversation around me. i like to not talk so it seems ok with me lol

    i have no idea how to help you with this. this does seem to be an AB thing and i guess maybe try to invite parents over to your home for non skating things like a birthday or a card game? i dunno.

    Just a thought.... how about take a box of doughnuts or something similar to bribe them over to your sitting area. Those AB's are easy to trap

    We are friends and tak during class, go out occasionally. But there is often this "separateness" it's the same most places I go. I am finished with school now so it's not an issue, just another example. I get what emi is talking about.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    You're not alone. Befriend someone who is similarly injured as you are, open up, and you'll realize how most, if not all, of what you feel and go through is felt by that person as well.
