    You know when

    Her high-end chair catches your eye in the same way that seeing her in a fabulous car does.

    You appreciate "hoopty" power chairs.

    When women refuse to let you let them off first on an elevator. Even though you tried a couple times, because you had an ulterior(posterior ) motive.

    You're A Disabled Person...

    When your dress gloves have their fingertips missing.

    When you know more drug compounds than your pharmacist.

    When you replace clothing buttons with velcro.

    When you can explain neuropathic pain to an AB.

    When you have yet to wear out a pair of shoes.

    when erectile dysfunction has nothing to do with your penis and everything to do with not standing up.

    When the phrase, "I've fallen and can't get up," is no longer hilarious.

    When my Parkinson's attack wins me first place in a jitterbug contest.

    When Medical Express, Invacare, and ROHO are on your speed dial.


    Thanks for the laughs,

    Hehe, this thread is funny.

    when....

    people assume the guy standing next to you is your brother instead of your s.o.

    and then tell you how blessed you are for even having an s.o.

    old people pat you on the head and offer to pray for you

    complete strangers come up to you and tell you that you can be healed through faith

    and then ask if you believe in God

    your closet contains more medical supplies than clothes

    complete strangers relate their tales of recovery from when they "broke" their neck in a car accident

    you avoid the open back sandal section at the shoe store

    you only buy jeans in the x-long size to avoid the high water look

    when you roll into the back of someones legs or ankles and they apologize to you

    when you go on a date and the girl holds all the doors for you

    when people tell you they are so amazed that you learned to tie your shoes again (at age 29 no less)

    when you'll drive 20 minutes out of your way because your bank has a branch w/ a drive through atm in the next town over

    when people look at and the first thing comes to their mind is , oh poor you, noone ever gonna ask you out...
    When people meet you and start telling story about not giving up hope cause someone they know got paralyzed and magically start walking!!!!
    when people see you locking the car and surprised you are driving
    when you go to hotel or any public restroom but your wheelchair cannt fit in since the definition of disabled washroom means it needs grabbing bar

    ...when smoking pot is accepted in your house because it relieves spasms. (so I've heard)

    ...when ramps become an issue of accessibility, not something you use to jump a bmx bike off of.

    ...you divide your life into two parts, pre-injury and post-injury.
