In this raw and emotionally vulnerable podcast episode, Hilary discusses the “spite, grace, joy, humility, gratitude [and] ambulatory use” of wheelchairs in her own life.
- Hilary opens up about the stigmas surrounding wheelchairs and their use. She recognizes that the average person (who’s never used/needed a wheelchair) might feel confronted with their own mortality and imperfections at the mere sight of one.
- People in wheelchairs do not enjoy
the either/or mentality people have surrounding wheelchairs.
- The most important thing is always knowing and doing what “what is in your best interest” despite what others think.
- Remember to have compassion for people who use wheelchairs; neither ignoring nor pitying them.
Hilary closes this powerful episode with a call to Mind Map your own life in and out of the wheelchair.
