Please tell your girlfriend i understand hating the chair..i hate mine also and i have had to use it 5 years now because of a spine/bone disease. I don't like the stares i get from ignorant people so i force myself just to smile back at them or say hi
Always shocks them, i like doing that lol
Please tell your friend i have lost my balance so many times in my home breaking my ankle, wrist and leg u to my knee cap. Recently fractured to ribs from falling down 5 stairs, i didn't land in a very good way my knee slammed into my breast and i thought i hurt it but nope it was my ribs.
You make sure she knows you can avoid all of this pain by using a wheelchair and forget about the stigma about them they could save her life! If she fell and sadly it will happen she could fall hitting her head and having head injuries is no fooling around matter.
This situation is just a accident waiting to happen
