Shoulder Pain...

I was recently asked what the biggest misconception is about exercising. For wheelchair users it’s “I don’t exercise because I don’t want toI was recently asked what the biggest misconception is about exercising.

Within hours of me posting this on Facebook I have received negative comments. I would just like all of you to know that this is the last thing that I would like to be doing! I am already embarrassed being in my chair. I have come to realize that I had to put my pride aside and and remain humble.

I am hoping that I am safe sharing… Continue
