My First Wheel Chair Ride

I had been living with psoriasis for 15 years happily. Experience with different medication moulded life into a routine and I could help others as well. Only recently that scaling went up several fold and one fine day I realized that both my foot were swollen and stiff. I could barely move when I had love the most. Fatigue, irritation, pain and depression took over. I work in Delhi and family is in Mumbai. The separation aggravated the emotional breakdown. Booked my flight but knew I can’t walk up to aircraft. Had to use wheelchair. While I profusely thanked supporter but I was broken inside while on chair when I saw elderly walking around. My doctor and my nutritionist has helped me bounce back and I am on my feet of course with tons of precautions.
