Thread: Quads pushing manual chairs

  1. #221
    Not to mention any names but what is the functional level of somebody with some wrist extension, biceps and triceps, that claims he just discovered a break at C1? I'm real impressed with Shaun's recovery! How many new C7's does it take to screw in a lightbulb? (5. 3 to sit on each other's shoulders, the one on top to hold the lightbulb, and a driver that pushes them in circles!)

    Oh n/m, Christopher answered my question. Except he named names, because he's not a good person, he's a rabble-rouser and a muckraker and insensitive to the special needs of delicate flowers from former Communist countries.

    Unlike, say...me.

    I wanna cast a vote for what chick said, about not limiting yourself in any way by the desire to use a manual chair. They're mobility aids, so choose whichever makes you most mobile in the long and short term both. Man, I want a power chair so bad! I hate times I have to stay home from something fun because I have nobody at that moment to push me...I really think the ideal is to own both.

    Godammit I'm addicted to this site again! No worries Shaun, I only found out I was a c7 a few months back. I guess we all like to embellish our injury to suit our needs. *cough*Fuente, adi *cough*

    I'm with Chick, if a manual chair impedes your lifestyle, by all means, go electric. I use both because with no car, an electric is essential to navigate winter here. I've been slacking off a bit the last couple of months, but once my elbow clears I gotta get back out in my manual. It all depends if I'm smoking or not. I still get to the gym 2 or 3 times week if I'm in my electric. But my social life trumps all. Which... makes it so effing hard to quit smoking!

    Curby, start by going to the gym, then ease slowly into your manual chair, just go around the block, set attainable goals and get there at your own pace. If you want it enough, you'll get there.

    Are you really, Shaun? I tell ya, I've missed some fishing holes and some rock concerts b/c of this darned chair, and I've had enough of it. I will NOT miss my bluegrass festival because of it again!

    Of course, I may miss it b/c pretty much every member of my birth family is having chemo. If I could fix that with a power chair, I'd buy 3!

    My mom and sister are named Joan. We call my sister Joanie. We call my mom, Mom.

    Sorry about all that chemo. Keep an eye out for the "C" word yourself. I think I have macular degeneration to look forward. It runs in my family. The anguish of aging... and the joy of being named Joanie.
