Amanda and I have started shopping around for a new vehicle. Things are definitely at the early stages, but ALS forces us to pose some uncomfortable questions as part of the search.
We are forced to project how my symptoms will progress. What vehicle is suited to the figurative journey I face? Will the vehicle be suitable for the hardware I will use, like a wheelchair? Headroom? Clearance? Ramp? Is there room for the girls?
This all crosses our mind before we've even looked at our budget.
One of the many challenges with ALS is the preparation and planning required to stay a step ahead of your needs. I feel like Amanda and I have done well in this regard, but it's not like ALS gives you time to sit back and bask in the glory of a job well done!
Here's hoping for an easy vehicle search. Does such a thing exist?
