    This is a great post. Thanks for posting! This is probably one of my favorite post. It made me laugh so hard. Because I can relate very well. I’m the one in the wheelchair, I have cerebral palsy though and my husband. These sorts of things happen with us to all the time.

    • Sam & Chelsea

      Thanks Jennifer! We figured there would be some people that would get a good laugh out of it! Glad we made you smile!

    Ooh, there are many things in the video that I can relate to, very funny! πŸ˜€ And the assumption that I am my wife’s caretaker sounds familiar as well. (Looking at the comments it seems I am the first guy to comment who is the walker with a wife in a wheelchair? Never did a count, but am I in a minority?) Going to follow your blog! Best regards from Holland

    Hi! I’m a lady Wheeler, t5 incomplete para for 10 years, and my fiance and I can relate to all this. I shake the bed like crazy a million times a night whether it be because I’m moving to cath, the get a drink, to change sides. I’m so glad my fiance, Jeremy, could sleep the an F5 tornado lol. Idk how many times I’ve gotten into bed, gotten all comfy and relaxed and realized I forgot something. I feel so bad asking for help. Lol, but I’ve found someone who just gets it. I was only 17 when I got injured in a MVA. My then bf of 4 years left me. I thought I’d never be loved this way. But I was so so wrong. Yha is for sharing, thanks for this page, even though its from a female POV its still so relatable! Best of luck!

    I love how Shawn tries to adjust himself in bed, my husband does the same thing and shakes the bed like crazy! The only thing that happens any different in my house is that I am the first one up and always the last one too bed. So I don’t get up once I am asleep unless it is a code brown in the middle of the night!

    • Sam & Chelsea

      Haha! If you date someone in a wheelchair, you have to learn to sleep through a shaking bed! Might not do us any good during an earthquake though… Much love, Claudia!

  • Abi

    I’m so loving this blog, it’s all so true πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ my husband has been in a chair for 16 years of our 20 year marriage X

    • Sam & Chelsea

      Thanks so much, Abi! Any Wheel Love Problems you’ve encountered that should make it into our next episode??

        A big Problem for me and my husband: Family and Friends want to visit us and tell us only 20 min. befor arriving. How could you explain the hole “bathroom- and get dressed up- thing” takes over 1,5 h.

  • Tulips

    Lol I’m a paraplegic lady who has been so scared to date but this restored my faith in love and humour. Hahaha haha god it was damn funny!

    • Allan

      A dear friend of mine has the best outlook. I asked her if she often met guys that wouldn’t date her because she is In a wheelchair. She answered “those guys who wouldn’t date me because I’m in a chair are the sort of guy I would never have dated anyway”. Live and take the chance, there are so many people out there who will love YOU.

    • Sam & Chelsea

      Don’t be scared! Love is love, everyone is capable of it and everyone deserves it! Thanks for taking the time to check us out!

    Absolutely hilarious! James and Chelsea, I’m so glad I met you two! Keep up with these! They are great!

    Great video! So true on so many levels! One of the things we have fun with, is that because Shelley often is seen wearing scrubs from working in the hospital, people don’t know if it is husband and wife, or caregiver, partner is usually the furthest from their minds. We were in Safeway one time, when I found that one old lady where I spoke up in my developmentally challenged voice quite loudly and said “my mommy said I can’t play with your boobies any more!” I swear the ladies head spun around 360 degrees! Shelley was mortified! And we promptly left the store

    Omg! My fiancΓ© has spina bifida and I relate to this a whole lot. I don’t know how many times, he’s run my foot over. Or he goes down the street faster.
