Our topic this month is all about wheelchairs. How do you know when you need one? What psychological barriers do people face in making this transition? What benefits to people experience when they decide start using one? How do you choose a wheelchair that’s right for you? Who can you consult? Have you experienced the “What took me so long?” phenomenon? Do you feel any stigma around using a wheelchair? Come and share (and vent!).
The Wellness Hour is open to everyone in the FSHD community. This is your time to enjoy the company of fellow FSHers, share challenges, talk about what works for you, and feel validated and supported in whatever you may be going through.
We will open the Zoom room a half hour early (4:30 pm ET) so members can enjoy an open forum to discuss whatever is on their minds. Rick Whitehead will be on hand to welcome you in. Wellness Hour has become such a popular destination and we never have enough time for everyone to share what’s on their minds, so we thought we’d try this approach.
Our monthly Zoom meeting on Wellness is held on the second Monday of each month at 5:00-6:00 pm ET. Each month, we’ll have a conversation starter topic, but this is an informal gathering and if the discussion veers off in other directions, that’s OK! We hope you’ll drop by to enjoy the company of some of the wonderful people in our community.
If you are interested, please register by clicking on the link below. You only need to register once for the monthly Wellness Hour series. You’ll receive notifications from Zoom with the meeting information.
