My First Shopping Trip

Well, my mobility scooter let me do my first supermarket shopping trip! Was so lovely to browse for stuff, vs looking at it on a computer screen.

I also bought a peak flow meter, so I could test my lung function out, and to my suprise, its scored 500-600, which is really good for me!! I'm very tall, so have quite a big lung capacity!

Antihistamines seem to be keeping my hay fever at bay (never had it before now!!)

The last puzzle is to get my legs working, muscles are still quite weak, despite exercise.

Wow nats, that is fantastic you could do some shopping! I know how good it is to get out and about! Hope your legs will get stronger in the near future! Wonder if leg massages would help you?❤️

Speaking to my GP today, I do not get pain in my legs, they just get very weak if I walk on them too long!

I’m happy that you’re enjoying the freedom of your mobility scooter. I completely understand the freedom of escaping the online food shop. It has its place, especially during the height of Covid, and also for heavy items, but it completely gets rid of a bit of impulsiveness!

Sounds like you're getting out there and getting better. I hope you'll be able to walk without getting tired and enjoy life more. I commend you on fighting and getting stronger.🤍
