I recently rented a scooter when we in Disney World and I found just being in a scooter had a tendency to leave me feeling a little isolated.
At times I waited behind the scenes for a ride while they had my family wait in the regular lines. Having said this, I would like to emphasis that while we had to wait in alternate lines and at times waited longer than the regular lines, Disney World is one of the most handicapped friendly places I've been to. The staff members in the hotel and the parks were courteous and helpful.
Other times, I noticed that people just did not see me. They would cross in front of me causing me to have to stop to keep from hitting them. I don't think they were being rude, they just didn't see me. As I looked around, I noticed the other people in scooters were facing the same things.

In addition to watching the live sermon, there is a chat option so you can connect with other worshipers.
What other ways can we overcome the isolation of chronic illness?
