Hold up slick. In post #81 you claim someone with CHF looks fat but yet in this very post you claim to look "abled bodied". Make up your mind and please do not forget your lisinopril.
Not everyone will look bloated on heart meds. It depends on which side effects hit you.

I personally can't take any of the statins because I get rhabdomyolysis, where my large muscles start to break down and clog the kidneys -- it's one of the side effects of statins and is a dealbreaker for using it. But lots of people can take them and have no problems.

The point of the guy's post was that you can't judge someone's disability based on their physical appearance. Some are invisible disabilities. Some are due to side effects from the drugs keeping you alive. So don't judge people who use the handicapped buggies.

The ones I judge are the ones playing on them, thinking they are fun. You can spot them in a minute. Mostly young folks. They won't think they are "fun" when they get in a position in life where they HAVE to use one.

I knew you were full of sh!t about your CHF. Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor used to treat CHF. You would have known that if you had it slick.

october, if I am tired and there are at least three of these buggies available, I will not hesitate to use on for 15 or 20 minutes.

ACE inhibitors are a first line treatment for both high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.

And for shame, O4, some poor little old lady is hobbling around the store now because you were too tired to walk and get your milk and bread.

You do know you just admitted to being in the same class as the fat lazy folks who use these. The way you fuss about all the folks and their taking advantage, I am surprised at you 04.
Personally, I think you are pulling our leg :)

Well, that's good to know. She could use her cane to beat people out of the way while y'all whip around the Wal-Mart.

You know, those motorized carts can be a hazard in and of themselves. My handicapped friend doesn't seem capable of going SLOW in those things -- it's either full stop or full steam ahead with him, so I don't let him use one. He uses the wheelchair one or nothing.

Last time I let him use one, he literally almost ran over a little old lady -- she couldn't have topped 95 lbs tops. I had to leap forward and snatch his hand off the steering thingy to make it stop, because he was just powering on towards her.

Too me those carts look like they would hard to shop out of. They are way too low to get anything even close to the top shelf.

They are hard to shop from. When I had to use one long ago I had my husband with to reach the stuff over waist height.

But if you notice, the "premium" priced stuff is conveniently located at waist height, which would be about chest height on people in the carts...

They're making sure you can reach the more expensive stuff.

Handicapped carts are available at most merchandisers and abused at those same merchandisers, so I think my personal experience of motorized carts is valid regardless of *where* that experience occurred.

Jeez.

But just to be clear, these carts are not marked for handicapped shoppers. Most of those carts have a sign on them that reads "for our valuable customers". We know who use them and who does not, but they are advertised as being for all to use.
