If you’re new to my blog, hello and a warm welcome! I’m Pippa, I’m from Yorkshire, and I have a rather inconvenient chronic illness. You can find out more about me here, and read my chronic illness story here.
I first became an ambulatory wheelchair user in 2015, when my mobility began decreasing due to my chronic illness. Back then I relied on a transit wheelchair pushed by somebody else, and did my best to make it work for my lifestyle. Fast forward three years, however, and I’ve now made the transition to becoming a part-time powerchair user, and own the Eden Comet power-chair from Eden Mobility.
I have to say, I’m loving the power-chair life so far (and I’ve shared a little about my own experiences over on my Instagram page), but today I wanted to talk about one of the biggest barriers that held me back from making this decision for so long: self-confidence.
