What do you do when you want to get through a door that has a step?

If it’s a really steep threshold, you might need a hand. Once you’ve gotten yourself up in a wheelie, get part way through the door and grab the doorframe to pull yourself up while whoever is helping you gives you a push from behind. If it’s not too steep and you can handle it on your own, grab the doorframe again and pull yourself through. In order to get out, be sure to go down backwards to start. Use one hand on the door frame and another on the doorknob while you lower yourself down slowly and safely.
