Despite the large numbers of people who use a wheelchair to get around, most Americans are completely oblivious to the struggles wheelchair users face.
Chances are, before you got a wheelchair, you didn’t give much thought to what it would be like to depend on one.
Now that you depend on a chair, you likely notice all kinds of things that would be fixed in our world were properly built for wheelchairs.
For one, all of those gaps and bumps in the pavement are a real pain when you’re trying to get around.

There’s also the invisibility factor some wheelchair users discuss facing, in which people stop directing questions at them and instead talk to their spouse, friend or whoever else they are with.
Always know that you are never alone in your struggles and triumphs.

According to daily wheelchair users from around the web, here are some of the best tips for coping and living life to the fullest.

1. Learn To Laugh It Off

Humor is truly the best medicine, and sometimes if we don’t laugh, we’ll only end up in tears.

2. Never Be Ashamed Of Your Chair

Use your wheelchair with pride.
Your chair keeps you safe and provides a way for you to get around without pain or discomfort, so you might as well own it.
Don’t let your wheelchair diminish your confidence one bit!
You are just as brilliant and amazing as ever.
A little bit of confidence goes a long way, regardless of standing up or sitting down.

3. Pick A Chair You Love

Find a comfortable, practical chair and doesn’t slack off in regards to style.
If you love your chair, it’s going to be a lot easier to live life in it.
With so many options out there, you are sure to find one that fits your needs, budget and lifestyle.

4. Set Your Home Up For Success

There are government grants available to make the necessary adjustments to your home.
It’s worth looking into this to see if you qualify.
Making your home easy to navigate in your chair is so important.
While you’re sure to face struggles out in the real world, you at least want to feel comfortable and confident in your own space.

5. Patience Is Important

Patience is important, but it’s not something most of us are very good at exercising.

6. The Future Is Bright

No matter your age or how long you’ll be in a wheelchair, your future is still incredibly bright. People had come crashing down when he first started using a wheelchair, but he soon realized his world was still as plentiful as ever before.
