Like many who are disabled we cannot do things like able bodied can do, I helped as much as I could too lift pottrey planters although I had to stop and rest.after a few mins Leaving my wife for a time, She did not stop and continued lifting with no assistance, Eventually after two hours I returned and was trying to get this trough of bogy, I slipped as I am very weak and cannot lift, and the planter struck and made a mess of Hazels foot, my wife then had to be taken to hospital with a hair fractures to a big toe. That made a very happy Easter, now I have my carer who is incapacitated,because of my stupidity trying to do what able bodied would find easy.I was tired only after a short time and could not assist. Now it is the disabled looking after the temporary infirm at a very critical time in our lives. Because we cannot trust those who are going to wreck our family home where my family has lived since 1933, so much for peaceful retirement.
So now I find ,myself in a problem of my own making, thinking I am trying too help and Iam not an able bodied person It is one of the problems of being disabled we try and compete in our own way and then reinforce that WE ARE DISABLED, and need to understand that, we have been told we are many times, we should know better, we are DISABLED, we cannot protect ourselves from a non understanding society.Where no help is available
So now we will struggle on I now know my capabilities now so I now know my failings and that has been shown to me as I am dangerous in doing simple things that many find very very easy.
Now I will look after my carer, that I have injured because we all try and live our lives to its maximum and things bite and show how silly we are to try silly simple things, we have to realize sit back and reinforce what we are. SUPRISE SUPRISE DISABLED
One thing she will be ok in a week or so, I will not do that ever again
