It is scary being vulnerable to further mishaps and the novelty of being in a chair wore of very quickly for me, replaced with the inconvenience and frustration of being restricted and being so dependent on others to get out of the house. However at least for we wounded it is usually a temporary situation though I had a constant worry about how much I would be abe to do once I got onto my feet. Multiple surgeons telling me how bad the damage was fuelled that worry. Nevertheless, life did go on and the opportunity is there to make the most of whatever function is retained and to work hard to maximise it. Inspiring rehab montages are optional, I didn't do one......because I'm selfish and lazy maybe. YouTube has plenty of them as it is. The scary near misses are unnerving but on the plus side they get a bit of adrenaline flowing and it is nice to get away with it. Congrats to the BWS guy for coming to your rescue @Ozgirl and keep going out into the wider world as much as you and your helpers can manage.
