As you say Ayjay, everybody has different scenarios. I don't even own a blue badge although I think I can safely say I 100% qualify.

My Dad had a blue badge meaning I could park in a disabled bay, but instead I always dropped him outside wherever we were going and re-parked in a normal bay as I was fit and healthy at the time. I think others wouldn't do the same.

I can't walk any distance so its probably time I applied for said blue badge, even with a blue badge I wouldn't be able to go to the supermarket I mentioned due to the distance I would have to walk.

I'm not lazy, Ankylosing Spondylitis has totally ruined my right leg to the point it can no longer bear my weight. I just constantly pray my left leg stays strong so I can hobble along...
