“This isn’t a good start to the trip,” I thought while trying not to topple to the floor. I’d missed my wheelchair seat while trying to transfer into it.
I was at the Lafayette Regional Airport in Louisiana, and the only bathroom beyond the security checkpoint wasn’t even close to being wheelchair-accessible. In fact, my wheelchair wouldn’t even fit inside the handicap stall, so I left it outside the open stall door. I stood and turned 180 degrees onto the toilet seat. And I made it. It was a little victory.
