Question: Living With a Disability

When Shelly saw Ms. Jones in a wheelchair, she felt sorry for her. She said a little prayer of thanks that she could walk and move freely without any hindrance. However, feeling badly for a person and actually sitting in the wheelchair for another vantage point is very different.

About:

The three major issues that I will need to work through in therapy will be sorrow, trauma and negative attitude towards life. It is notable that if I will suffer any such accident that will make me paralyzed, I will become socially withdrawn and isolated because the inability to move and do my work on my own will impact my life considerably.
I will find it hard to maintain confidence levels and will develop a fear of facing new situations and meeting with new people.

The accident will leave me in complete trauma or immense emotional pain because it will change my life completely. Moreover, I will generate a negative attitude towards life as I will not be able to do a lot of work on my own, which I used to do previously, and that state will hinder me to view life positively (Henderson & Bryan, 2011).
