    Getting new equipment should be fun and exciting. Especially since much of the time we have to fight tooth and nail to get it. Unfortunately it can cause a lot of anxiety. One of my favorite blogs, Elizabette Unplugged, sums it up perfectly as she’s starting the process of getting a new chair.

    Can you relate to this? Do you welcome change, or resist it as I sometimes do?

    Oh my gosh, I can TOTALLY relate to what she says in this blog! I hold on to my chair as long as I can, sometimes making it last 12+ yrs. before I even think about calling the DME. It’s such a stressful situation, and then the waiting period from when you get all the paperwork to the wheelchair company, after it’s been approved by insurance, to when the DME finally calls you to say it’s in. Those 5 to 8 months can be the most grueling for me because that’s when I tend to mull over all the possibilities of how it could go wrong. The seating won’t be right, the height won’t be right, the armrests won’t be right, all kinds of things that could make it not only uncomfortable but absolutely unacceptable. Because, no matter how hard my Alan & I try to replicate everything down to the minutest of details, something will be off. And then we start the adjustments…
