Staying Mobile

It is not easy these days with all the commotion around and uncertainty pertaining to our healthcare insurance. We have no clue yet if we can keep ours, but we suspect our deductibles and co-pays will go up substantially.

My hope is that my RA medication will still be covered. I would be devastated if we couldn't afford it anymore. That would result in limited mobility and also could mean I might eventually end up in a wheelchair.

I had to use a scooter years ago, because walking, riding a bike, and even turning the wheel of the car, was simply too painful during a flare-up. Once the flare-up had subsided, most of my strength had vanished and needed building up.

From experience I can tell you those scooters and powered wheelchairs are great solutions. The biggest problem I encountered however was accessibility. Not all stores are equipped with handicap ramps and getting in, out, and around in your home might give some trouble.

It doesn't have to be that way. No matter what you would need to cover some ground and/or keep socializing, there are some excellent, high quality devices out there which are very affordable, even if you would have to pay for it out of pocket.

We all hope we are able to go through life without needing those devices, but when we do, it is a comfort knowing there are no worries included with the purchase!
