April 3, 2023 twodisableddudes

Maneuvering a wheelchair presents many situations that are much different than a person who uses their legs to get around.  When you offer to help someone in a wheelchair, here are a few things you should keep in mind.

In this Episode:

  • Kyle checks out a new section of bike trail so Sean wants to make sure he does it safely.
  • You Got This, Mental Health featuring Kate Walker – Depression is common for people living with Rare Disease – Kate shares a bit of her experience dealing with depression.
  • Sean brings his “Top Ten” list of annoyances while traveling in a wheelchair – constructive feedback for those who want to help.
  • Thank you notes – The people who make bike trails happen, and Sean’s editors at Friedreich’s Ataxia News
