This could have been me 8 years ago. We traveled to Ohio from Oregon to spend he holidays with family. I weighed 365 pounds at 5’2″ tall, and was wheelchair bound. It was the trip from hell. I was treated rudely – okay – more than rudely – hatefully is a better descriptor – by many that trip. It was awful.
It just breaks my heart to see this guy – you know he’s in pain. You know he’s miserable. You know he’s humiliated. You know that people have said horrible things to him. You – like me – might know well the dilemma of being a super morbidly obese person with the need to travel a great distance – and air travel is your best option.
Is there an answer?
Obviously – I love the answer I found. My DS is nothing short of a gift straight from the hand of the Lord God Almighty.
Is it for everyone? Maybe not.
I started reading the commets on this article and could only go so far – it just was too painful. PEOPLE CAN BE SO MEAN! People who have no clue about what it means walking a FOOT much less a mile in our shoes have NO CLUE whatsoever about what is involved here.
So what do you think?
