Physiotherapist & Health Visitor (equipment at home)

Physiotherapist & Health Visitor (equipment at home)

Hi there I’m back again and do hope that someone is out there reading this…

Physiotherapist & Health Visitor (equipment at home). A visit was arranged for an OT (Occupational Therapist) to visit me at home to assess my needs, a week or so later a guy arrived with two raised toilet seats, one for the downstairs clock room the other for our on suite, he also put up a grab rails for the clock room, a pull down rail to help me get off the toilet upstairs, a grab rail on the wall next to our bed to help me get up during the night and in the mornings, one of the most useful things was a preaching stool in the kitchen, So I was sorted(or so I thought). That was towards the end of 2012.

Christmas 2012 was the last time I had a drink, what happened was a real scream, one of the situations you have to laugh or I would just sit and cry. I have Christmas lunch in the oven and my husband and son took me down to the local pub for a quick drink, while the turkey was cooking. I only had one glass of wine for two reasons really, firstly I still had to finish and serve the lunch and second big reason alcohol doesn’t really mix well with all the tablets. Anyway we enjoyed lunch and I have a second glass of wine, which was a big mistake… I was sitting watching TV as you do on Christmas afternoon and decided to go upstairs to get something… But and my leg just didn’t seem to connect with the ground and I just lost my footing. Luckily I was not actually on the stairs but no matter how hard I tried even with the help of my husband and son I just could not get up.

They decided to try and get me upstairs and put me to bed because it was getting late. So with my son up the steps and husband at the bottom step off we went one step at a time, but each time I got up one step up, somehow I managed to slide down one step so as you can imagine it took forever.

When I finally reached the top stair another problem arose… how was I going to get from the top of the stairs to the bedroom? The only way was for my husband to pull me from one end and our son to push me relying on the fact that I was lying down and my clothes would act as a smooth surface, my two gallant boys managed to tow me to the bedroom and some how they got me in to bed. We were all laughing so much that we had tears running down our faces, so what started out as a problem actually turned out to be one hell of a funny experience. After all the frivolity I was totally exhausted and slept like a baby that night.

2013 so far so good carried on working, but things would happen this year that I could never have expected. Without going into to much detail I had to “Retire from work due to ill health” that was in October of 2013, well at least my stress level reduced once I stopped work, I could now attend Physio and hospital appointments during the day without booking time off (don’t ask) anyway my husband who had been made redundant a few years earlier became my full time carer, unfortunately my MS advanced at a rate now,my mobility was deteriorating rapidly, I could no longer walk just using my lovely walking sticks .At one Physio appointment the inevitable happened I was given a walking frame (Refused to call it a Zimmer frame) I’m only 53 so felt I wasn’t old enough to have one of these, but it was just for home. We decided to go away for a weekend so called the wheelchair services in our area and arrange an appointment to be assessed, hopefully in time to get a wheelchair before we needed it to go away. Well they were brilliant explained that we planed to go away to the Norfolk Broads for a weekend and they delivered a brand new wheelchair suitable for me in a fortnight.

We were off weekend book at a B&B with disabled access (yes I now have to refer to myself as disabled) It was great to get away we spent days going around the broads lunch at quaint pubs ,we sat out side in the great weather over looking the water, we just looked where the disabled toilets were. Had a great weekend.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog
    loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Excellent Blog!

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    developer to create your theme? Superb work!
