As I write this, I am sitting in my new apartment, on the couch watching a 50 inch flat screen TV which was a gift from my roommates grandmother. We moved last Friday, and are enjoying it immensely. I’ll write more about the experience of living on my own in future posts; with but today I wanted to focus on an aspect of independence that continues to mystify me.

Car Transfers

Let me clarify I can car transfers, with the difficulty lies is with higher vehicles such as vans or an SUV. they are too high! I am only about 4’11″ maybe even 4’10″ needless to say those larger vehicle transfers are almost impossible to me. You would need a tremendous amount of strength in my case to basically, at least in my case; bench press myself up into these vehicles. Does anyone have any thoughts for a possible solution to this problem?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
