Hello pals! I am in a bad place just now.
The problem is my shoulder. I wrenched it about 2 months ago when trying to hutch yself back into my wheelie.
it seemed to get better, but yesterday I did it again…big time!
Now I can hardly use it for anything other than this 2 finger typing. Can`t even sit and do my sewing projects.
All I wanna do is go to bed!
I had this feeling years ago, when my left foot kept tripping me up and I kept falling. I had constant severe pain in my thigh from lifting my leg and swinging it out in an effort not to let it trip me up.
Most mornings I wondered what the point of getting up was.
I got over that when I began using a wheelie.
Now I have been a full time wheelie going on 8 years.
I had a hoisted installed last Nov, but i was worried my legs would seize up. so the routine was to hoist for bed, and wee times when in bed. I don`t mean I weed i bed, I mean in and out for the commode. About 4 times a day/night.
That meant using my patient turner for the other trips to the loo…about another 4 times a day.
But with this shoulder pain, going to the loo using the turner is total agony…it`s had me close to tears.
One thing I am really getting anxious about is when I go out. I need the loo once or twice whilst out, and I do this with the help of a carer (sometimes 2). I have to find the strength to stand, turn and sit and then t`other way round. It is knackering.
But what will happen if I can
t do it? Will I just have to wet myself? I tried using a feminie wee bottle...no good at all.....cant get itin there…too fat!
