Produced by: Wheelsnoheels – Gem Hubbard
Description: ♿️APRIL MARKS LIMB DIFFERENCE AWARENESS MONTH. ALTHOUGH IM NOT AN AMPUTEE, I CAN IDENTIFY WITH LIVING WITH A LIMB DEFERENCE. AFTER I SUFFERED A SPINAL CORD INJURY, MY LOWER LEGS BECAME PARTIALLY PARALYSED. THE MUSCLES WASTED AWAY, AND WHAT MUSCLES AND LIGAMENTS ARE LEFT, ARE PERMANENTLY CONTRACTED AND TIGHT, THIS IS KNOW AS MUSCLE SPASTICITY. ITS PAINFUL TO STRETCH. I WAS ALSO BORN WITH A TWISTED TIBIA, WHICH CAUSES ME A LOT OF PAIN.
THIS VIDEO IS A COLLAB WITH MEGAN, SO PLEASE CHECK OUT HER VIDEO ON LIVING WITH LIMB DIFFERENCE, AND SUBSCRIBE TO HER BEAUTIFUL CHANNEL.
After suffering my spinal cord injury i have really had to adapt in life. So Im showing you my disability lifestyle to raise disability awareness. As a disabled woman and a woman in a wheelchair who is paralysed, I thought it would be interesting for you to see, and hopefully give you some inspiration and motivation so that you can live more independently. wether you are paraplegic or quadriplegic I hope that I can help you. The wheelsnoheels message is “so no one has to feel alone.”
I have lots of interesting disability videos, a lot of videos on how to cope with a disability and living life in a wheelchair, wether you are a girl boy woman or man. i have some paraplegic exercise videos, and advice. its important to keep your fitness levels up as much as possible as this can when physically and mentally with depression.
If you feel I have given you value today consider buying me a ko-fi, just think of it as a tip.
