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.
We have a Key opportunity to vote and make a difference. We have a opportunity to you make American normal again. Welfare services are needed to support the majority of the disabled community. Every vote counts more than ever. That’s turn PA blue again.
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.
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.
Does anybody here find this blog confusing?
Duoderm and Neosporin with pain relief really said my skin. My wheelchair cushion is causing major damage my skin. At first I was a little timidated to use duoderm because most of the skin was gone. Only after a day The skin is completely healed. I also took time to lay on my side during the day to get out of the chair.
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.
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.
