A lot of my new chair is made up of parts from my old one simply because I hate change, and I still miss it. Definitely have patience when making the transition (something I lack). It takes time to adjust as you mentioned from your last wheelchair update in 2014.
Great column. Loved your dad’s shoe analogy— but I’d probably roll my eyes too haha.
Great article! I’m a few months in and still not loving mine. Unfortunately I switched brands, so I can’t swap out what I liked from my old chair this time. Luckily I have a team that is patient with me. I just need to be patient myself and get over it I guess. It’s not easy though because I know there’s someone in the world who could attach my old joystick mount to the new chair. I just don’t know who.
