I hadn't gone out for a whole day for 9 months, so this was rather exciting and encouraging for me. Thankfully I figured out how to address some digestive challenges so I could stay out longer without feeling sick. It's a little scary to try to get out and about, feeling limited physically and also food allergy limitations. I got a pass for the Metro for me, and a discount card for a caregiver to travel with me. My cards are good for 5 years. There's a lot of people with various disabilities that can't drive. So I think it's great there's programs like this to help make transportation possible and more affordable. I've been wanting to do several things for awhile in DC. Now I can look online at schedules, rates etc. My disability/discount passes count as smart cards too. It's been a year since I stopped being able to drive. I thought this was a great way to celebrate, with a new way to get out and about again. Looking forward to some new adventures soon!
Here is a link to the website Spinalpedia: https://spinalpedia.com/ They have over 7,000 videos. Most of the people in the videos use wheelchairs and show how they adapted to do various things, like the video in this post. Spinalpedia posts a lot on Pinterest, but I think you need to set up an account (free) to view most of the videos on the site.
