Last night we attended a 50th Birthday party of a friend. We had attended a few parties at this venue in the past few months and it was quite accessible with a lift down to the wheelchair toilet.
However this time the party was on the top floor, we got the lift up and were looking forward to a nice night but hold on this is where it starts to go all wrong, when getting out of the lift there were about five steps to go down and the stair-chair was out of order. These steps were looking straight into the party room and I could feel about 100 pairs of eyes staring out of the door as I was lifted by three security men down these steps, once inside I could not relax as there was no disabled toilet facilities in the room and I could not imagine having to go through the same process every time I wanted to spend a penny.
Needless to say we did not stay long but it's times like this that you would feel different from everyone else and would love to through the wheelchair out of the window. Well just had to get that off my chest.
