My name is Sharon Price and I live and work in Corvallis, Oregon. I've

I am a published writer. My writings include:
For the past twenty-eight years I have lived entirely on my own. My
life has its challenges, of course, but I have ways of coping.
For some reason I always have hated using a wheelchair, so I have many
other modes of transportation:
- My scooter, "Hotrod" - my main mode of transportation
(I've already worn out three of them!)
- My walker - I use it when I go somewhere with someone in a car
- When I am at home I crawl around on my hands and knees
Speaking has always been a hassle. Few people can understand me. I
only use the phone to call close friends and family. If I need to do
business, I have someone call for me.
I tried one communication device but had limited success with it. It
kept breaking down and I kept having to send it back to the manufacturer
to get it fixed.
Email has been a God-send for me. It's been the best way for me to
- My friends
- My family
- And most of all, my doctors
I bring a typed note with me when I go somewhere and I know no one
will understand me. My favorite saying is “Never mind.”
Most people understand that.
