I've been in a wheelchair for 6 years, is it possible for me to ever get out of my chair and maybe walk with assistance again?

      Yes it is I worked years at a hospital on the rehab unit I saw it all the time trust me it can be done but you have to really want it and work hard at it once you are over that line the rest is a peace of cake

      I really needed to hear that it was still possible, thank you 😊 I'm a mom of 4 boys and they're all getting older and I feel like time is just flying by me because I'm extremely limited on what I can do with them. I look at my chair as a ball and chain and I'm the prisoner.

        @AnnLea I get that! I have 2 kids under 5 and sometimes I'm unable to walk with out assistance. So I understand to a point. You just need to get into physical therapy. It can take about a year or so. But it can be done.
