Two of my friends convinced me to use the airport wheelchair service for my trip to Charlotte, North Carolina a few days ago. I thank them for that. I was uncomfortable expecting someone to push me around the airport, but in the end it was the best thing for me. I got pretty dizzy walking in the airport, and reading signs was a challenge. Since I used the wheelchair service, by the time I landed, I wasn’t fatigued like I thought I would be. I also had pre-boarding status so I didn’t have to wait in long lines and worrying about tripping over anyone. I must admit that other pre-borders and wheelchair users seemed more disabled than me, but I shouldn’t have made it a contest. The bottom line is that I’m glad I did it, I have gratitude to the many people who helped me, and I hope that the next time I travel I won’t need special accommodations.
