Wheels of Glory

How many of you are in wheelchairs? There are definitely times where I could benefit, but for now I'm more comfortable being home than in a wheelchair. And I think I've figured out my problem: I haven't seen any amazing wheelchairs. And so I've decided that if the time comes and I decide it might be easier to get around on a 4-wheeler, I want one of these:

Did you ever see the movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks? You know how they're flying through the air and everything turns psychedelic looking (or maybe if you're prone to sensory issues this part made you throw up and you never watched it because you'd rather stare at the ground than watch swirling colors and want to puke on yourself)?

Anyway, this would be a good first choice.

Do these go up escalators?

The redneck option

Ground effects!

A future parking spot

When you're rollin' in the club.

The great part is all of these come with some amazing accessories like matching gloves, custom cushions, and streamers. Ok, I haven't seen any with streamers yet, or rhinestones, but I'm sure they exist. And I will find these. Oh yes. I will find these.


  1. This is a good post! I've also been diagnosed with POTS. The past few months it's hard for me to do much of anything (my main symptom is dizziness) but I haven't seriously thought of a wheel chair yet..I probably would get out a lot more if I had one, but I've kind of gotten in the habit of going out when I feel a bit better and just sticking around the house when I don't.

  2. i've just caved and ordered one, and it's very blah... i have plans to paint it in Gryffindor colours with awesome racing stripes! Just as soon as i can face standing up... ;)
