It’s Called A Wheelchair. You’re Welcome.

WARNING: I am mad AF, so prepare for a lot of swearing, ranting, and if you’re a fan of Madonna, don’t read this. If you are a fan of Madonna and still find yourself about to read this, please don’t come for me.

It’s recently become apparent to me that people have NEVER seen a wheelchair before… or, have simply never seen a 20 year old, ‘healthy looking’ female in one.

Until today, I haven’t been out in Madonna (my chairs called Madonna because it’s a piece of shit and I can’t stand it) for around 5/6 years, give or take a year or two.

To everyone who stared at me today. Fuck you.

To the adults who stared at me whilst I was having a laugh. Fuck you.

To the kids who stared, and to the parents who joined in with the staring. Double fuck you.

And, to the man in the wheelchair who stared whilst I got out of the car, and got into my chair. Guess what? The biggest fuckwit award goes to you. Congratulations.

No, I’m not expecting everyone to cover their eyes whilst I glide on past. I’m expecting everyone to have a little goddamn respect and to mind their own business.

So, all I’m asking is that if you see Madonna and I, just smile and carry on with your day. It’s not fucking difficult.

To those who don’t do the polite thing and don’t actually consider that I may in fact ACTUALLY BE A HUMAN TRYING TO GET ON WITH HER DAY, don’t think for a second that I won’t continue to stare your ass out too. Also, I am incredible at staring contests, so I think we both know who’s going to win this one.


It’ll be me.

  1. Wow, fuck them. Just use those situations as a reminder that you are so much more intelligent, respectful and open-minded than most of the population and move on. On a more positive note…you are super cute so they are probably just checking you out πŸ™‚ xoKitty

  2. I’m sorry people are such idiots. I get stared at a lot too. I’m not sure why. Everyone that’s with me notices though. I’ve kinda gotten used to it. Anywho, you’re perfect. And you’re right. Fuck them and their disrespect. You’re amazing girl. Don’t let that shit bother you.

      1. Yes!!! The first time I went out with my mother in law she yelled at some guy and was like, “hello! Would you like to say something? Because you’re staring like you would like to have a conversation!” Lol

      1. Does she have any fans?
        People are crap. Let them stare. Decorate your chair in boob cones and glide about sining like a virgin. Give them something to stare at. Own Madonna babes.
        PS you need to write a book. The way you write your experiences is hilarious & so real. You got a talent my lovely friend use it!xxx

      2. Surprisingly, I think she does! Whenever I mention my ‘dislike’ about it, I get more than a few words thrown my way πŸ˜‚
        I’m definitely getting on that boob cone idea though. Madonna will be SHINING!
        But thank you so much! You’ve made my day haha! xxx


  4. Ahhhhh…I can so relate to this. I’ve been a wheelchair user for three years now and I still get annoyed by people who often stare at me. I get either the looks of sympathy, people trying to be overly nice to compensate for their uncomfortableness or people ignoring me all together. It’s weird and awkward. Sorry you are experiencing this.

  5. Wow…I’m so sorry people treated you like that, I genuinely can’t understand why! But I love your attitude when it comes to negative situations, it’s clear you’re pissed off yet you deal with it way better than I would have. And the fact that your wheelchair is called Madonna killed meπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  7. Screw those bastages!! You roll with Madonna and screw what the incensitive fucks have to say (or in their cases not say) Those people don’t matter. I’m new to following you, so not sure why you have Madonna, but it also doesn’t matter. None of my business, and it’s none of theirs. The world is full of fucshittery…don’t let them steal your shine. Blogs are great for venting frustration.

    1. I don’t think I’ve loved a comment more! I have written a post called ‘My Chronic Health Journey’ if you’re interested in knowing a bit more! I just pray that none of them twats end up in a wheelchair and get stared at! They’ll then realise how much of a dickhead they’ve been if they ever end up in one!! x
