Are you still able to attend big events/attractions?
Most of the time I choose not to attend crowded events/attractions. I have sometimes rented a scooter - but they always charge very high fees. It seems like they are taking advantage of the handicapped. My husband has Parkinsons, so he is not able to push a wheelchair.
Share your most recent experience at a big event?
After parking in the handicapped parking, I struggled to the event and carried my own stool! Once there I was able to enjoy the event while sitting on my stool. There was no seating offered for anyone. Everyone had to stand. Because they were standing and I was seated, I couldn't see the event - only heard it.
What I'd Do Differently
- Bring a taller stool
- Arrive earlier
- Skip it
Do you regularly use a cane, walker, or wheelchair?
Need a cane, walker, or wheelchair for a big event?
Has arthritis caused you to miss many events?
Is it depressing to skip an event?
Yes , but I try to take advantage of smaller events where I can manage.
