Mmmmm, an interesting thread and such an array of answers/thoughts!
Of course we can all do what we feel like doing if we have the finances covered.
No-one mentioned this in their reply.
To stay at home,and/or in bed, we need to have our rent/mortgage paid (unless we live rent/mortgage free), our electricity, gas, water bills etc paid. So I guess PJ, that you`ve got all this sorted.
I often think how life can be directed from inside one`s home.
You could do internet/telephone banking, have food delivered, shop on line, visitors calling on you, etc.
No, you need never go out…ah, but what about medical appointments? I have more telephone appointments with my GP than face to face ones. You couldnt get your neuro or uro, to come to your home…unless in very unusual circumstances.
My dentist visits me annually at home, as his premises are inaccessible. Fortunately, I never need anything doing.
I enjoy the occassional day in bed. My bedroom has a conservatory leading off it, so I am able to enjoy my garden and my little dog runs in and out as she pleases.
My meals are made for me by my hubby or carers. This happens whether I`m in bed or not.
I do love getting to bed every evening…or earlier if I am uncomfortable. I need to stretch out, as I have an spc to accommodate. Being squished up all day in my wheelchair or even recliner, doesnt give me the relief my bed does.
It may be against our medical bods advice, to remain in bed, to receive no sun nor fresh air on your face, never to speak fce to face with another person, but I can see why it would suit some. So PJ, if it suits you then carry on regardless!
I`ve suddenly got a deja vue feeling…have we discussed this topic before?
