Obsessed with Disney Ears!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you as obsessed with Disney ear headbands as I am? Some think that Minnie ear headbands are just to wear while visiting a Disney Park, but guess what? They are WRONG!!!  Disney headbands can be worn anywhere and at anytime of year.  For example, what disnerd wouldn’t be thrilled to wear a birthday headband out to dinner?  Ear headbands are perfect for Disney bounding and showing everyone your love of Disney.  I wear mine everywhere and have yet to have someone make a rude remark! In fact, my ear headbands make people smile and often prompts them to share their favorite Disney related memories.  Join me in making the world a happier place by wearing your Minnie ears while out and be sure to tag me (The Disabled Diva) if you post it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

My New Wheels

My New Wheels

This is NOT a sponsored post.  I purchased and paid for all the products mentioned in this post.

Last fall I purchased a new wheelchair.  I have been waiting to write about it because I wanted to make sure it was something that I would recommend to my readers. Those of us living with one or more chronic diseases know that coming to accept our need of a mobility aid isn’t easy and the cost of them often prevents us from buying one.  As my old wheelchair began to rapidly fall apart, I knew it was time to replace it and prayed I could do it without draining my savings account.  As expected they weren’t cheap.  Then I found one with elevating legs for under $150!!!

My first thought was that the price was too good to be true.  However, since it fit within my budget I decided to give it a try.  At worst it would be a piece of crap and I would return it. I ordered my Drive Medical Blue Streak Wheelchair with Flip Back Desk Arms, Elevating Leg Rests, and 20″ Seat from Amazon. Shipping was free with my Prime membership and it arrived two days later.

I have been using my new wheelchair for several months and have been very happy with it.  Its light weight makes it easy for my husband to load in and out of our SUV.  This inexpensive wheelchair has withstood the hills, cobblestone paths, and trolley tracks of Disneyland.  I have run into walls and poles without damaging it.  It’s comfortable and the elevating legs bring relief to my legs when I am experiencing nerve pain.  There is a pouch on the back of the seat that I keep my raincoat in.

My husband and I  have only a few complaints.  My first complaint is that my foot rests are not the same length, one is a smidgen longer than the other. My other complaint is that the footrests are always elevated to some degree.  While this annoyed me at first, I have noticed that the swelling I used to experience in my feet and ankles when out for a day is no longer a problem.  My husband’s complaint is that the handles for pushing are also slightly uneven.  None of these complaints have given us a reason to not use it nor has it made using it difficult.  But it did take a little getting used to.

Would I recommend this product? Yes and No.  If you are like me and only need to use a wheelchair for outings and not on a fulltime basis, then YES.  The only reason I would not recommend this particular wheelchair for fulltime usage is because of how the legs stick out.  Like I said above, the feet are elevated to some degree at all times which would make it difficult to move around a home that was not designed for wheelchairs.  However, Amazon offers many affordable options for those who aren’t able to spend hundreds of dollars on a new wheelchair (click to see more options).

In addition to purchasing a new wheelchair, I also bought a few accessories to make my outings more pleasurable.

My Pembrook Wheelchair Backpack Bag fits perfectly on the back of my wheelchair and holds much more than I expected it to.  I purchased two Demi Milan Stroller & Wheelchair Organizers.  One is placed on the back of my chair and the other on the inside of one of the armrests.  Now my husband, daughter, and I all have somewhere to keep our drinks.  Just a little FYI, if your wheelchair is wider than average you will need to purchase extra Velcro to attach it.

Wishing you a day filled with many reasons to smile,

The Disabled Diva
