I say again: I find it very disappointing that, either I'm entering information and questions incorrectly, or no one really wants to participate in discussions related to this OT condition. What good is a support group that doesn't support it's members??? The website is difficult to navigate (and I am truly computer savvy.)
1) Yesterday I shopped (in the 97 degree New England heat) in one of the big box home improvement stores. The heat really exacerbates my OT condition. When I got to the register, the fairly young cashier was disgusted, rolled her eyes to the ceiling and let out a loud breath of impatience when I had to sit down on my rollator. I still worked through my purchase, swiping the cash debit card, etc. I told her, that either I had to sit on my rollator or she would have to pick me up and that wouldn't be good for either one of us. I told my husband about the situation, and the next day I decided to talk to the store manager, with the hope that the cashier would be spoken to and be trained in how to react to persons with disabilities. I can handle the rudeness and callousness, having had this OT-Plus for over three years. I just hope that this doesn't happen to anyone else with any type of disability.
2) My cousin has various disabilities and has to use the restroom stall for the disabled. (Another OT sufferer noted his abuse regarding this type of situation in another post a number of weeks ago.) I told her to tell the rude, heartless individual, should it happen again: "My disability is none of your concern."
