I have to begin by saying this post is brought to you by my bad mood. Unfortunately, only I sponsor me, so I don’t get paid for saying that, but at least I’ve warned you.
The last few days have not been good. I’m not going to say terrible, because that’s a lie and there has been good moments, but I’ve spent a lot of it in bed. As I’ve said before, having a spinal injury means that I have issues with my internal plumbing. As a result of the infection I’m currently fighting, my entire internal system is being messed up, which is seriously getting me down. I have to deal with things like ‘accidents’, bloating, discomfort and other such fun additions to my daily life. Whilst normally I’d not complain, this time it just seems to be hitting me. Oh well. I end up spending a lot of time in bed, which leads to a lot of bad moods, and then unfortunately that extends on to my family. It is incredibly hard to stay positive when things just seem to keep going wrong.
As well as trying to break through this infection, I’m also trying to break through the invisible wall that seems to be holding me back from a new wheelchair. When you need some form of mobility device like a wheelchair, here in the UK you go through your local hospital trust which has a department known as wheelchair services. At present, I am trying to be seen by them for fitting out for a new wheelchair. The one I currently have is, although usable, unsuitable. My mission is to have a new one as soon as possible, as this will increase my independence and abilities.
That’s all there is for today. I plan on doing some educational posts soon, on conditions like mine, wheelchairs, anything even remotely related. If there is something you would like me to address and explain, please get in touch!
