...when you look at someone with a visible, physical disability (e.g. someone in a chair, using crutches, having no legs or arms) while walking down the street? Is it awkward for you? What do you think is that caused by? Do you feel ashamed of feeling scared or turning your head away?

I used to always look away and pretend I didn't see them or something until I realized what it felt like to be the person on the other side. I have been in a wheelchair a lot of the time due to my epilepsy and constant seizures. I don't want people to pretend to not see me when I definitely know that they can see me in a wheelchair. I definitely wouldn't mind if someone came up to me and asked me how I got in a wheelchair kindly. I invite people to do that actually. I'd rather them be educated then ignore the subject.
Life could be worse than being in a wheelchair, just got to remember that :)0
