My Scooter Gets Me out of the House

I have never been the type to worry about what other people think about me. I have been through a lot in my life, and I just learned to put myself first. When I fell down a flight of steps and hurt my back, I knew that I was in for a new kind of struggle. Before, the issues I had to deal with were never caused by physical problems. Now, I knew that I was going to have to look into mobility aids because I was just not going to get around anymore without one.

I decided to go all out and get a mobility scooter because it was just going to be the best choice for me. I was not concerned at all with what others would say about me using one because my only other option was to stay home and not get around at all. My back injury was severe enough to where I would not be able to walk for even short distances because the pain was just too incredible. I considered a cane, a walker and even a wheelchair, but I knew that I needed something more when I was out and about in town.

The mobility scooter that I chose can go up to four miles per hour, which might seem slow but is actually a decent speed for my purposes. I also like that it has a headlight because I go out at night at times. It also has a basket so I would not be dependent upon anyone else carrying what I might buy at a store or what I take when I leave the house. I was able to get a really good deal on a new one from a website that my doctor referred me to, and I am just happy that I am not homebound.
