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.
What I’ve come to learn is that is small victories. Life is better when you compete against yourself, instead of others.
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 just bought some bondage rope to make my call Bell long enough to reach new bed placement. That’s what I call gimp hack ingenuity at its finest. Bondage rope is soft, long and durable.
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.
