"I would be lying if i said breaking my chair down and putting it back together at every stop i make doesn’t sometimes get old and tiring...to be honest, sometimes i find myself wishing things were as simple as being able to just park anywhere at a store without wondering if i have enough room to open my door all the way and unload my chair and just jump out and run in and get what i need and be done. Sometimes i wish i didn’t have to get soaked when it’s raining and i have to unload and load my chair in it. Other times, on bad days, i wish the chair didn’t even exist in my life and my accident never happened. Then once the bad moment has passed, thoughts of all the others living from wheelchairs who aren’t physically able to be as independent as i am or just don’t get the opportunity to have their own vehicle and be able to drive always seems to hit me and it tends to always remind me of how blessed i actually am. I am blessed to have full upper body function and strength that gives me the ability to break my chair down and put it back together every time i get in and out of the car. Blessed to have my own car. Blessed to have hand controls on my car that gives me the ability to drive myself any and everywhere. Blessed to be completely independent and blessed to have such a busy life and always have places to go. I say all of this as a reminder. To remind all of you that no matter how tough your life may seem or your days may seem sometimes, remember that someone else out there always has it way worse than you do. Someone out there wishes they had the life that you have. Someone out there prays for the things that you have. They pray to have the kind of bad day you’re having instead of the one they’re having. They pray to have the ability to use their arms and upper body. Pray for independence. Pray for a car. Pray for the money to afford things like hand controls for their car just so they can drive. They pray to someday have somewhere to go every day when they wake up to give them something to do. Life is all about"...cont’d @allygrizzard
*Long post of exciting news* I’m always amazed that when things seem at their most impossible solutions start to magically appear. Two years ago when things became extremely bad health wise I moved in with my Mum for six months until I got my health under some type of control. Two years later I’m still here with worse health and in an inaccessible house, desperate to move out. I’ve been applying for accessible housing for ages and on about 15 housing registers and nothing was coming up. Then this afternoon I had a phone call from a housing association to interview me as one of their top three people most in need of rehousing for a flat that has become available. AND I GOT IT! As a result of one phone call I am moving next month to a brand new area to live in a newly built, fully wheelchair accessible flat with pretty much all the adaptions I need built into the design! To say I’m excited would be an understatement. It’s incredible after all this waiting that it is happening very fast now. It’s also a bit scary as I have a matter of weeks to pack, acquire my own furniture, sort everything normally needed for a move, hire PAs and carers for my new address, get my care package adjusted for living on my own and also arrange things like switching councils/ NHS areas so need to sort hospital beds, mobility aids, return things to OT and get new equipment and adapted furniture, change NHS wheelchair services, sort physios, OTs, social workers, medicines, move to universal credit etc. etc. etc. So it’s a mixture of overwhelming terror and excitement all at once! Excitements winning though! Spoonie friends/ chronic illness warriors and wheelchair users who live independently please send me all your tips, life hacks, ideas and things to bear in mind for all things independent living, moving house and hiring new carers. Thank you 😊 🏡
