Logistics of Doors
One of the most difficult things about being in a wheelchair is doors. They are a constant pain.
If they open outward I have to do some fancy footwork to grab the handle and then get around them. Then there is the matter of closing the inward opening ones. I have to either turn around (which is easier said than done when you're navigating with your feet, one hand, messed up vision and sometimes cramped spaces) or grab it behind your back and almost flip backwards trying to close it. I mostly prefer the turn around method.
Doors. Who knew they could be such a hassle/time consuming pain??
