Over did it last week and now suffering
I have found getting out of bed a difficult and dangerous, keep losing my balance and falling over. So when I go to get out of bed I have to sit on the bed for a bit then get up.
Went out with my friend to the metro centre, to have a look at the shops. I was going to higher a scooter but couldn't afford it £30. So get a self propelled one instead, it wasn't very good rather poopy if I'm honest. Low down no cushion, heavy and when I was pushing myself it veered off to the left. Ended up jamming my thumb between the wheel and the brake "ouch"
So going to demand for a manual wheelchair from my specialist iv seen one I can get from wheelchair services. 'Quickie Aaron 2 wheelchair' lightweight.
I'm try to lose weight aswell on slimming world. It's hard tho.
Problem is my dads girlfriend has FMA and all she keeps saying is if I lose weight I won't have the problem with my hips, even my dad is telling me and I'm trying to tell him not every FMA sufferer is the same. So I'm letting them get on with it and do what I think is best for me!!
My boss and CSW (Communication Support Worker) at my volunteering thinks a wheelchair would be better for me. I can't do my dishes without being in extreme pain.
Once I have the wheelchair I'm then going to apply for high care and mobility. As my flat is aided, bathlift, high toilet seat, bed leaver, hand rails in bathroom and at front door and heightened sofa. Then maybe I can apply for a bungalow
