Today One of my four points broke on my seatbelt, so I attempted to get a script from the doctor. By the way when the nurse from hell answered I knew it was going to be a bitch getting the script I need it. She kept arguing about the order in which things had to be there and I told her the wheelchair company said the opposite. I would like to point out this always happens with this particular nurse. They are the nurses and Dr. H is ood about getting Scripps but this nurse is a raging bitch. When I attempted to call a second time the same nurse answered, so I hung up and tried again. The third nurse was completely understanding and sympathetic about my dilemma.
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.
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.
Sometimes I would forget to tell my attendance to turn on my floor lamp in the living room and I would be left in the dark. Sometimes I would run and get my neighbor to do it, but I didn’t want to keep bothering him. I found this Nifty little gadgets on Amazon. All you do is plug the little Outlet into an outlet and it comes with a remote. Just remember to switch the lamp in the on position or it will not work. The gadget was only $11. I hope this find is helpful to other people in my predicament.
I feel accomplished because today I was able to feed myself. It has been a few years since I was able to feed myself. I think it was fitting it was pizza.
I still feel this insurmountable amount loneliness. I wouldn’t say that is just part of my depression, but I’ve been feeling this way my entire life. I can be in a room full of people and still feel alone. Maybe I’m just meant to walk this world alone. I want to feel like this life is a gift, but what kind of gift makes you feel like crap all the time? I spend most of my time hiding the way I truly feel. I feel like I am living a dishonest life.
