I am about 13 right now and I am in a wheelchair. Not only do I have a wheelchair, I also need legbraces while sitting. My legs are too weak to help support my weight, and the bones are out of position. Thus, I need a wheelchair. It's really hard on me, cause at school and stores everybody stares. Plus, I am way shorter than everyone since I am sitting. I use the elavator at school to get up the stairs and it's really loud so everybody sees me. It's really sad knowing that I will never be able to walk and will always be in the sitting position. My feeling for touch fades at my knees. And I'm not as active as I used to be. I started usimg a wheelchair and leg braces when I was 7. My mom got in a car acciedent but she is fine now and I'm disabled. Once I got up from my chair and stood. It felt fine to me so I tried walking. The braces actually helped me move, but after about 2 attempts to make it to my mom, I gave up, I can't walk anymore and nevermore. My bed has 2 bars and I just lift myself out of my wheelchair using those bars then I scootch myself onto the bed.
