For the past few days I haven’t been using my self catheter in the mornings because I usually sit on the wet room floor, legs akimbo, using a mirror to see “Franklin” my urethra (you have to name your equipment, to ‘bond’ with it, don’t you?)
For the past 18 months I’ve managed fine, then struggled back into my wheelchair but I’m finding it harder and harder to sit on the floor then get back into my chair, to the point I’ve been avoiding using my catheter when I need to use it – I can’t see life getting any easier either.
I tried sitting on the loo to do the deed, but really struggled to move my legs to the right position and balance the mirror, aarghh!
So I thought I’d ask you ladies if you have any tips on how to use a catheter without injuring myself of calling out firemen to get me back into my wheelchair afterwards? I’d be really grateful for any tips you might have!
Thank you in advance!
