If you don’t walk your pain doesn’t matter

I tried something new

I tried wheelchair yoga for the first time and to be honest I didn’t have high expectations. I never saw myself as the meditation Namaste type, however after a few minutes I got into it. I’m planning to go back and give it a go, but I am still on the fence about this whole thing.

Things that suck about my disability

Yesterday I had gotten what started out as a sinus headache, that slowly turned into a migraine.  All of a sudden, I had the urge to poop, before I knew it poop was up my back.  I had to get my PCA to cut one of my favorite shirt off my body, so I wouldn’t get poop in my hair.  I had to throw my pants away.  Moments like this are the reason why I don’t like spending a lot of money on clothes.  I hate those kinds of days.   

I am going to continue

I decided to keep going to Voices to workout.   Stephanie assured me I am making small gains.  I was able to open the refrigerator by myself.  Plus it gives an excuse to get out of this hell hole of a building.  I love the  exercise bike.  I need upper body  strength.  I think we get to a place where we all want to give up,  but we can’t.  We got to push through, so we can persevere. 

wheelchair fit

I know I have not been around very much. I’ve been working on getting the kinks out of the new wheelchair. I finally got the headrest that was supposed to come with the new wheelchair. I am still waiting on the chest strap, which is frustrating. I believe the wheelchair company installed the ankle huggers backward,  because he had the padding on the back and the thin strap was cutting my circulation.
