For several years people have been trying to encourage me to use an electric wheelchair, in fact I first had one in Rehab so that I could take myself of to the canteen for a coffee, or even out for a cigarette, when I used to smoke. My problem since has been, the fact that I've become more mobile and can walk independently with a stick, despite being incredibly slow and sometimes unstable. I've been rather naive, assuming that I can walk everywhere. I've started to accept the fact that I can't, and have just ordered the Whill C pictured below.

Another problem that I've always had is, anything to do with being disabled, and will ultimately make life easier, actually looks hideous.  The Whill C actually breaks the rules and looks quite trendy. 

*Happy days, independence here we come*
