Tomorrow my wheelchair arrives and I am happy!! On Friday, at work, my left knee decided not to play nicely and I was sent home as I couldn't put any weight on it, that wasn't too bad but on Sunday the other knee and ankle decided to join in.....my husband got home from work to find me in tears because I couldn't , even with crutches, move!! Saw the doctor on Tuesday and have to have an x-ray on my right leg because she thinks there is something wrong!!
I know there is something wrong...it is swollen and hurts like hell!! My husband picked me up from the doctors and took me to a mobility shop to look at disability scooters at which point I adamantly refused to consider one. The lady then showed me a wheelchair which was confortable but too small....I am not a slim woman, but didn't have one in my size so we left the shop to think it over. Then today my husband told me he had bought me one and it is being delivered tomorrow.....it is a self propelled one ( I want to keep some independence) and I am looking forward to getting out and about again. Some people would think it would was giving up to have a wheelchair now when usually I only use a stick but to me it meansI can continue to do the things I want to without being reliant on my husband or family to aid me. Now all I need to do is get a sticker that says 0 to bitch in 3 seconds and put that on!!
