I love to meet new people.”
I especially like a trip to the supermarket. I like to use my one-page-profile, so that people know something about me before I visit - then it's less likely that there will be any problems. I've used my one-page-profile to give to staff in hospital, as well as for staff at the local Sainsburys where I live in the North East of England.
I'm very pleased that I can go to the supermarket. My staff supported me to make special arrangements. I'm pretty tall and I feel safer in the supermarket sitting in a wheelchair. When I walk I have to bend over to see what's on the shelves and to see other people.
I can now focus better on the things I've come to buy, so I enjoy it more. The staff at Sainsburys know me well now, and it’s nice to get a welcoming hello from a familiar face.
