    A gun! Not really...I would probably shoot myself accidently. I think about self defense alot more post injury...I'm sure I'm an easy target. Flip my chair over and I'm pretty much helpless...they could take what they wanted - car, money (if I had any)! I just hope they leave the chair close by when they leave!

          The best defense is not putting yourself in iffy situations. That's not always possible I know but..........the times it's not, try to have really bad breath? Guard yourself girl, Lex

              It´s better for them to say from here he fled than here he's dead. I´d run (or wheel) as hard as I can.

                but what if you had no choice?

                like, if you were a kid in school and some kid decided to rough you up?

                what would you do if someone decided to whoop on you?

                  I guess I would go for the nuts. It hasn´t been that long that I forgot how much that hurts. But I agree the best remedy is precaution. Carry a big iron pellet to throw at somebody, I don´t know. Very difficult question.

                    Grab by the ear and / or hair and bring them down in front of you ... they get disoriented. Don't let them up. Knock their head off your knees if you can.

                    Poke their eyes out. Punch their throat. Yell, scream.

                        With all these suggestions, I'm starting to get a little anxious. I back to thinking about the gun. I'll be damned if I'm gonna hurt my knees with someones hard head. With my luck they will bite me as their head hits my knee...who knows what desease they would give me.

                          What kind of self defense are you mostly interrested in?

                          Are you thinking about picking a fight?
                          Or..
                          Are you talking about late night, I'm all alone in the dark and the boogie man is a comin?

                          You may check with your local police dept to see if they offer self defense classes or perhaps have referrals.

                          Know your surrounding, have good lighting at night. Don't be afraid to ask someone to escort you to your vehicle etc..

                          If something does happen, remember your voice. Be very loud, scream, yell. Any attacker fears attention. Add a whistle to your key chain if you dont' think you have a loud enough voice.

                          Got your keys in hand? Use them.

                          Claw, scratch, bite, use everything you have available to you.

                            nah i don't want to start a fight, i'm a pacifist *rolls eyes*

                            i was just curious

                            i think instead of using the knee, i'd use my leg rest or my hill climbers. if they can tear up my foot like that, how about the face

                              objects handled with hands needing finger dexterity... well, for a quad... not much more needed to add there. cali is a inc, quad? not sure how much function you've got, but I would caution having a potentially dangerous and deadly weapon in your hands that could easily be taken from you to be used against YOU.

                              Is there a center like a women's health center primarily focused on health and well-being for women? It could be a disability center? A hospital that may offer well-being and related courses? For example, the rehab center here has a Disabled Women's health center that offers many services, including free seminars, which have included Self-Defense info and techniques for disabled women, primarily using wheelchairs.

                              Do some research. Make some calls. If you don't find any near you, organize one! You are definitely NOT alone in these concerns and having something addressing these issues can benefit many women (but not just women).

                              Good luck. Let me know if I can get further info RE the seminar held here. May give you something to work with.
