Today was a beautiful day! The temperature reached 90 degrees for a few hours in the afternoon with a slight breeze. I decided to get out my mobility scooter and go cruise around the neighborhood.
This is my mobility scooter:
This was prescribed for my by the VA doctor after I was evaluated. The neuropathy is progressive so it was only a matter of time till I would have to rely on this scooter more and more. This year is looking like it will be the year I start transporting it around and using it in stores.
I have a nice lift in my van ( I bought myself) although the VA would have furnished me a lift if I had needed one. I like having the mobility scooter inside the van rather that hanging off the back. It is more secure, it doesn't get as dirty and the desert sun doesn't beat down on it all day. I lucked out and the Van is the same color as the scooter so it looks like I did it on purpose!.
I would rather be able to go for walks but since I can't it is nice to have a way to get out and cruise around the neighborhood.
