I AM a disabled lady who has to use crutches to get about and stay upright.

On Friday, 2 November, I was walking past the bus stop outside the hospital when it started to rain heavily.

I headed towards it to get my hood up on my coat and do it up correctly, and as I struggled an elderly gentleman came to my rescue.

Before I could thank him the bus had turned up and he was gone, so if you are reading this thank you for your help, it was very kind of you.

Some people see I have a disability and walk or turn the other way so thank you also for treating me as a human being.
