Today when I voted

When I voted today I feel a bunch of machines that were not at wheelchair level. I had to have my PCA sign a paper so she can help me vote.

I would like to see in the future is tablets on a gooseneck mount, so people in wheelchairs can adjust The tab within reach. I believe that disable people are constantly overlook when considering the voting process.

Seating appointment

I have my seating appointment on Friday. When you have a custom molded seat done. They basically put you in a giant bing bag chair and are you going to tell them where you would like it built up more and where you need it maybe a little less support. I feel pretty good about this mold. It Felt very supportive. I can’t wait to get my new chair, because this seating system is sitting on the base. I have a lot of pressure sores do to that.

The purpose of this blog.:.

I want you to take something positive from this blog. Even if you decide things I do are not right, you can use me as a example of what not to do in your life. I just want you to know that we are all struggling with something, and when I find a little little trick that makes life easier I want to pass it along. I will like to show you when I get down some , because we all go do it. I want you to know how grateful I am that you all have decided to come along on this journey with me. I did not get any comments, but I got a lot of likes for my feedback request, so I am going to take that as a sign keep going.

New iPhone

Well I have done something I never thought I would do, I bought me an iPhone. I got to say I like that you could take a car without having to unlock your phone. I love that you can store your passwords. The fingerprint scanner is difficult at times, but it’s nice when I can get it to work.

Echo Review

Gone are the days of expensive environmental control units. Thanks to Amazon Echo, I can now control my lamp with the sound of my voice. You can buy smart plugs that turn your dumb appliances into smart appliances that can communicate with Alexa. What I mean is you can take a standard Appliance and buy a smart plug and now your Appliance can now communicate with Alexa. The instructions for a little complicated, but it was easier once I started to fiddle around with the app myself. YouTube was valuable for setting up Alexa. I plan to get more smart plugs so I can control my appliances via Alexa. Now I can turn on lights in my apartment without asking for help. My next piece will be automatic curtains. The small things insignificant to an able-bodied person, but you’re person with a disability the small things are major victories.

I can now control my living room lamp thanks to Alexa and a smart plug.  I am hoping to get automatic curtains that I can pair with Alexa.  Thanks to smart plugs being inexpensive I can turn my standard appliances into smart appliances.  I can now make  crystal clear hand free calls with Amazon’s Echo.
