I wear leg braces and though I do not use a wheel chair all the time, I do need one if we're some place where a lot of walking is involved. I'm amazed at how you become "invisible" when you're in a wheelchair! We went to Sea World last year and my friend actually had to act like an Ocean "Ice Breaker" and walk ahead of me so I didn't run into the people that kept cutting me off in front of my ECV. It was amazing. I can understand kids doing it but it was grown adults. My friend would say "Excuse me" so people would know we were there and she actually got into an altercation with one woman that mouthed off to her when she said something about her standing right in front of me during a show---just like I wasn't there!!!.
