Wheelchair whizz


me out for a walk by ascu75
me on my scooter carrying my Grandsons scooter

fits your palm for more comfort
I have gone from the hard work wheelchair to easy street. The new electric wheelie makes for an easier life not only for me but also Heather my long suffering wife. As I sit in the wheelchair typing this she is on the settee sleeping trying to get over a cold. Our eldest daughter has got flu so she has  got this cold from her, bad daughter. I am writing this post to tell people who are housebound get out there if you can. I know and I myself have cut myself off from my family and friends because I couldn't be bothered or a I didn't think anyone wany wanted me around. After all I am just a burden and of no use to anyone WRONG your family want you the friends may not want you but if the dont want you around even more reason to get out there and phiss them off. And you will feel better for it. I know all about feeling vulnerable and lonely but you can feel that indoors so get out and see the world meet new people and make new friends. I am sure you will feel better using whatever tools you can to get around I myself ave gone from staggering around to using first one walking stick to two. Then onto crutches if you go for crutches a word of warning go for the ergonomic hand grips they are are more comfortable than the standard round grips   I know believe me.
better comfort and support makes you smile

I then went onto various walkers or eventually a zimmer. Then the hard work wheelchair I was able to use a self propelled one with the hand rings on the back wheels. That is better than being pushed where you do not want to be by someone else. Beware of being pushed down hill by your son who thinks it is fun to let go So now I am in an electric wheelchair indoors. I also have a mobility scooter for walks when out with the kids

Watching Bargain Hunt

I am sitting here watching TV Bargain Hunt has just started, I turned over from the Autumn Statement  when Edd Ball started his reply. I must say it was more of the same so here is to hoping Bargain Hunt brings a smile to my face. I have just had my hair cut, Abbi come to the house and cuts it for me and now I am feeling a whole lot lighter. Be back later it is TV time and lunch.

Waiting for Doctor to phone

Sitting here waiting for the doctor to phone me. I just want some advice over my tablets should I take more or can he prescribe stronger ones, nothing serious but I want to run it by him. I am much the same sorry I haven't posted but my Promote Thanet blog takes priority and I forget to post on here, odd really when you think my MS affects my life so much but there again I dont regard myself as disabled just not well. I still think I will get better! Some hope of that but stranger things have happened. Did I tell you all I have a new wheelchair an electric one I dont take so many lumps out of the door frames as I did but have now started running Heather over.............. bad move without her I am lost but twice now I have run over her foot. Painful for both her and me, she get toe ache I get earache. I am sitting in the wheelchair now with the laptop on my knees and looking out of the window watching the birds devour all the food we put out for them. They are an endless source of entertainment for me, I have loved bird watching since I was a kid I think the first book I got as a child was the observers book of birds     
This morning I have seen a Wren Blue, Great ad Coal Tits and watched several comical Parakeets doing acrobatics to get to the feeders Here is a video of some I did last week with my little camera
