      Yes! ♡ I also have cfs/me and I suffer from PEM really badly, I can't walk or stand for more than a minute or so before symptoms start to set in. Having my wheelchair has allowed me to go outside again, I would be completely housebound without it, having it has honestly made such a positive difference ♡

      I borrowed my nans to allow me to got to a winter lights show, and I wouldn't have been able to go without it. A complete game changer.

      Getting my electric wheelchair was the best decision I've ever made to allow me mobility and independence (I disliked being pushed by people in a manual chair because it was so inconsistent and out of my control). Second best decision was getting a rollator walking frame for the days I'm well enough to walk but need some support and especially somewhere to sit along the way.

      I would definitely do it. I didn't until last year, and I wish I did years ago. I just always assumed that they'd make me motion sick. As I get motion sick doing a slight turn in an office chair. But I don't get motion sick in my chair, which is great . I have a power chair. I would have missed out on a lot less if I'd had it years ago.

      If you're thinking about it, yes!

      I don't see any reason why you shouldn't, if you feel it will help you you should go for it!
