A few weeks ago I got my ADA transport card. This means a bus will come pick me up when I order it and take me anywhere in town for $2. Home again for another $2. (The getting home part is important, eh?)
Today, I looked up information on the wheelchair-accessible pool we have here in Washtenaw county and found out there is a $50 discount in membership to the recreational facility because I'm disabled. Then I called to ask my Doc for a note of disability, which should arrive in the mail by next Monday. Either Ebay will come in or Oscar will get paid by the 4th to pay for the $135 yearly membership. So, all things considered I can start swimming once a week (more often as I gain strength) within the next 2 weeks!
I am excited and nervous. But its a matter of life and death for someone of my weight. That's worth a little discomfort at being seen in a swimming suit. I'd probably feel more comfortable naked. But I'm weird like that, and it could get me arrested in public, so swim suit it is :-} Maybe if I dye my hair flourescent Pink it will distract viewers?
