My doctor visit

My doctor says she’s still concern about my weight. She said that I probably could get off of some of the medications that I take if only I would lose some weight. I know what I have to do I just can’t make myself motivated enough to care. To be honest, sometimes the thought of adding 30 to 40 more years to my life is scary to me because that is there is a 40 years pain. Who in the right mind would put themselves through that on purpose? I’m not suicidal, I will live as long as God wants me to, but to purposely and 30 to 40 more years to my life sounds crazy to me. I wish I could find how reasons see you ignite that’s the spark for the  life I had once.

The banned on straws

The banned on straws could affect millions of disabled people around the world. Such a simple device has given freedom to a lot of people with disabilities. Most people with disabilities that have severe upper body restrictions need a way to drink hands-free. The traditional drinking straw provided a cost-effective solution to this problem, but thanks to an environmentalist movement to ban straws all of that could be threatened. I don’t know if people truly understand the lack of this device for people in the world with disabilities. Metal straws I am practical, because some people have white reflective and if they come down on the Metal straw they are going to end up Siri injuries to their mouth The solution that I use may help some people. The cost for this is $30 and is called Hydrant and it is available on Amazon.

You can see the tube on most of my pictures.

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.
