Disabled Parking at Home

In order for me to get in and out of the house, my husband or Metro Mobility needs to be able to park in front of the house on the street. There are two steps (one regular, one small) then a walkway to the street. The neighbors are usually very good about not parking in front of our house as they know about my mobility issues. Their friends and family, however, usually aren't aware and if they park in front of the house, it makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for me to get out.

I called the city to see if there is anything that could be done, perhaps a handicapped only parking sign. I got bounced around from the city clerk to the police department to the police chief. Hey, at least I headed UP the chain! I'm waiting to hear back from the police chief. Maybe he'll have a solution. Even if not, it doesn't hurt to ask.


I did well yesterday and stayed under 2500 calories, did 30 minutes of exercise, and drank 8 to 10 cups of water.

  1. Did you hear from the police chief yet? If your car is accessible once you get your stamina up maybe you can venture out to the pool on your own! Imagine how freeing that will be! And what a great goal to work toward....focus on mobility and the pounds will go in the process.

    Isn't about time for another update from you? :-)
