I igot my first set of wheels when I was very little. I think 4 years old. It's a part of me, who I am. When I look in the mirror I don't notice the wheelchair. I think that's funny because it's the first thing everyone else notices. The only time I actually think about my chair is when it becomes inconvienant(like stairs or a narrow doorway). Maybe its just me but I constantly feel like I have to prove that I'm"normal" to everyone I meet. I want to start dating again and meet that someome special but its hard when all they see is a hunk of metal.
