I have to use the wheel chair the store provides to go shopping. At first I wanted to cry every time. Now I just accept that what is is and if I want to do things I have to work with my limitation. It took a long time to get to that point though. I think you will find time is the best adjustment you can give yourself. Forgive yourself because this is not your fault.
