Anyone who thinks that the diagnosis will land them on the sidelines should be disabused here!

In general, it can be said that with this diagnosis almost all activities can be carried out as before. The big difference is that as development progresses, the activities have to be prepared and planned more extensively and in more detail.

A wheelchair symbol or the statement "wheelchair accessible or disabled accessible" does not always have the same significance; neither nationally, nor internationally. 

When traveling with an electric wheelchair, certain forms must be submitted in advance for ship or air travel.

You only become aware of these and other surprises when you're upfront the issue, and who likes standing with pants down?

In this area I share my experiences and impressions from my activities, so that others can avoid one or two unpleasant surprises.
