Why I'd Rather Gather Online Than in Person as Someone With a Disability

I have spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. As a result, I use wheelchairs. Because I’m not able to shift my own weight much, let alone stand or walk, I use a power wheelchair that tilts and reclines.

These features go a long way to help with achiness and stiffness, but they also make the chair a large one that fits well only in spaces that are built according to the most up-to-date accessibility specifications.

For navigating tighter spaces, I have a manual wheelchair. I’m not able to transfer myself into either one of these chairs, and due to very limited arm extension and strength, I’m not able to wheel my manual wheelchair.
