Getting around the house

I seem to post a lot this week but i am getting help and maybee the things that are helping me will help you . Cant do the housework well i am lucky i have 2 old computer chairs and my daughter put one upstairs and i ca sit and make the bed and it is on casters and i can slide into the bathroom and clean the loo and sink , i can also get to the draws and put cloaths away. This might seem a lit of rubbish but i have my indipendence even if it takes me a long time.

The second is in the downstairs and i can get to the kitchen -prepare vege and tidy up as well as dust the lounge.

Then daughter no 2 bought me a vacume re chargable and light -i can do the floor not perfect but i feel as if i am winning.

I am after the electric chair next not a new one as i havnt the cash but i will find one on E/BayAt this moment my lovely hubby and brouther in law are building me a ramp as i cant do the steps. They are 75 & 72 years .Some days i cry with the pain and some days i can belt around and those days you can catch up.

Love to all this site is great.

It's so great to read about you getting such fantastic help from all your family members. With such people around you, you are already a winner!


Contact the council (if you're uk based). With advice from your doctor they will give you a wheelchair for free.

It takes about 8 weeks.


You go girl! I really hate having LE but I try to look at it as a life challenge. Something to learn from. The wau I see you is a person who accepted the challenge and won. Definetly a winner.
