Vacations can pose many challenges for those of us with SMA. Despite encountering some barriers, in Halsey’s most recent column she shares how the kindness of others meant the world. We just had a similar encounter where my cousin helped lift my chair over a threshold to get into their house. As Halsey mentioned, I don’t think they realize the weight of these chairs. But it is nice that they’re willing to help.
On the flip side she also brings up how inconsiderate some individuals can be. I try to avoid crowds for just that reason. Sometimes it’s inevitable. More often than not the good outweighs the bad.
What challenges have you faced while on vacation? Do you find people are willing to help out if need be?
I wish I could fully convey how inconsiderate the people in the aquarium were! It was unbelievable and exhausting! But it was great to see that even when these things happen, there are still people in the world who care about others!
