Schools back but for me it's now a long road back to normality after the holiday!! I haven't really been able to (or ever been any good at) pacing, so my body is definitely rebelling. I'm aching all over with the exhaustion and my brain fog is so bad I'm not actually sure how I'm … Continue reading Doctors second appointment
Sunday saw me heading down to Dunsfold aerodrome for Wings and Wheels. As if explained before I'd not so much been looking forward to it, rather worrying but thankfully nothing beforehand went wrong so mobility scooter dismantled and packed and emergency kit supplemented with 2 bottles of icy water and a cold water spray (and … Continue reading Wings and Wheels
As I've not had so much time to write and post recently my next few posts will be catch up ones from what I've done over the past couple of weeks. They might seem a bit out of date or written as if it was before we went out (because they were started before), yet … Continue reading Expectations
Yesterday, wanting to make the most of the nice weather, we decided to go out again as a family. This time we had settled on somewhere we have been a number of times before, Pulborough Brooks which is an RSPB run place, this is usually a good bet because we know what I can and … Continue reading Wow a fairly successful family outing!!
Yet again two days ago saw me off to the hospital with mum for yet more blood tests!! We have researched and found out the quieter times because of my sensory problems and problems with crowds so late morning saw mum and me at the local hospital for my blood tests. Seems however that most … Continue reading Blood test deja vous!!
Today was D-Day, my first appointment with my new doctor. I can't say that I was looking forward to it. My brain was in total overdrive and the two nightmares I had last night definitely didn't help. I had written my list, an essential piece of my doctors appointment equipment for without it I am … Continue reading Phew, that wasn’t as bad as expected!! But has anyone seen my knuckle??
So the other night I had my first ever (or that I can remember) disabled dream. I think that having been able bodied before and having not used a wheelchair for a lot of my life I have always dreamt that I was still able to walk about. My dreams seemed to be an escape … Continue reading My first ever disabled dream.
I've suffered with migraines since I was approximately 4 years old, but you try telling the schools nurse (we had school nurses when I was at school) that you have a migraine and that you can't do anything about them when you're that age. I heard that I was making them up, or it was … Continue reading Migraines and Mishaps
This week I have had two hospital appointments, both at our local hospital which has meant that I have been able to get to them in my mobility scooter. It's meant though that for the rest of the week I've not really done anything, I've not been able to go out in between because for … Continue reading Appointments, pacing and “The Unmentionable problem!!!”
When you have a disability you know that things are often not that easy. Almost everything had to be adapted to fit. One thing I never even considered would be an issue though is rain covers, I mean they have rain covers for prams so why not wheelchairs right (OK so I don't particularly want … Continue reading Wet days and mobility scooters!!
