Pronoun agreement

Grammarly, does not like "we". Does anyone have any suggestions?

'As "we" were making our....'

Thank you!

See example:

As we were making our way to the ED doors, I told myself "Remember!

Grammarly is flagging a possible pronoun number disagreement between we and I.  Grammarly does this whenever it cannot tell what the number should be.  It is asking you to doublecheck.

What Grammarly is doing is telling you that the subjective pronoun "we" may not be appropriately used.  The program is not telling you that it is not used correctly.  That said, if you change "we" to an objective pronoun (me, you, him, her, it, our, or them), the program will not highlight your sentence for incorrect use of pronouns.  In my opinion, this is not acceptable.  I noticed this issue about a week ago, and I opened a request with support.  My argument is that it never used to happen so it shouldn't be happening now.
