While using the wheelchair, I felt as if I was in the spotlight every time I entered a room or crossed paths with a group of individuals. People would look on as I posed in the wheelchair and give either confused, amused, or disapproving looks. Some people would try to help if he/she saw that I was having a hard time opening a door or moving around. The wheelchair was very hard to move in at first, but I eventually learned how to work it
