Wheel love dating

One thing we can agree on and has been a major life lesson is that dating or marrying someone in a wheelchair is the same as having a relationship with an able bodied person.It may take a little getting used to but soon enough the wheelchair disappears and what you are left with is all the “normal” aspects of living and loving with a significant other.This person may be eased into the situation by being allowed to stay in an envirnment he or she has become accustomed to (perhaps a kitchen, where the third wheel can bake cookies for the couple.) The third wheel may feel uncomfortable about watching the couple canoodle on his her her sofa, but none of this is taken into consideration.

So what happens when this smart, independent, successful child finds love and happiness with someone in a wheelchair? Someone that accepted you for the strong (stubborn) person you are and work with you as your partner without holding you back.From the moment they see that image at their very first ultrasound, they have a picture in their head, an entire storyline of how that baby’s life will play out.From their first steps, to halloween costumes, to family vacations; from the career they will have, to finding the love of their life, to having kids of their own.I had worked at GF Strong on the spinal cord unit for 13 years so had encountered all levels of injury.If you are new to the world of wheelchairs your life has probably been filled with new experiences and new information.
