Interesting to get one for UC. Is it a temporary one, and if so, for how long? Certainly helpful for bad flares where seconds make the difference between making it to the bathroom or not...
It's acutally a permanent one which renews every two years.
as the parent of a child in a wheelchair, i'm pretty sensitive to handicapped parking permits - and the folks who choose how to use them -
my short response is, if you need the space, use it - if you don't, let others who often don't have other options have it -
Just because I don't have wheelchair (I often wish I had one) doesn't mean I don't need the permit sometimes. I started fainting since I was 11 years old. In combination with my flare right now and having constant tachychardia it really is a relief to have it. When I go to stores I have been using the carts to drive around on because this way I will not faint. I had many close calls before. I'm so glad they have them. I guess it's better than fainting and having the ambulance called for me.
