Two helpers happily offered to push me up this obstacle-course item. When I explained the danger of falling off, they offered to physically lift me out of the chair and carry me up the stairs. They had big grins on their faces, presumably pleased that they were able to get me to church – but I was sinking inside, and I now just wanted to go home.
