A Trip To Town....

Some asked me to share this daily life.  I drive my chair out to van, let out the lift, climb into the drivers seat.  Make necessary adjustments, then drive off with hand controls, thankful I have them.


Unload at the store, put the lift back up.  I ride too fast into store.  Get too many items, I need more than planned.  I ask someone to get me the high items down, thank them.  Check out with nice cashier helping. 

Uh oh!  dropped my shoe, cannot reach it, lap so full of stuff items.  I sit there until a nice lady offers to pick up my shoe.  She was so kind, she put it back on my foot. 

Continue to get out of store, let lift out of van, load up.  Climb back into drivers seat, now tiring with heat.

I drive home, get mail, unload from van with items that are frozen, take them into house, put up lift again.  I learned to have patience.

Now what a boring story, for such a small trip to the store.   The small things in life,  can be a challenge.  Now I need to clean again.

I am thankful I can be independent with help from kind people.  It was another story when I had small kids to take with me.

Good, good morning, Kim. I've been wondering how much time a day do you have to spend in your chair? I know you get out and walk some. You are truly an inspiration to all of us.
Blessings, dear friend.

This might be the most random comment ever, but I actually did my Master's thesis in Neuroscience on MS, so I know an awful lot about it. So I really respect you for being so open about all the things that go through your mind as you go through your day. I dropped by from MBC and I'm your newest fan, by the way. Visit me if you'd like at www.fatnutritionwriter.com.

Love your spirit!

My uncle is wheelchair bound because of damaged joints due to hemophilia. He is one of the smartest, most independent guys I know.

He mowes his lawn (riding mower of course), has a garden and has even replaced a bathroom floor.

He refuses to be held back!

BTW- I know what you mean in your profile- I teach Journal Writing classes.

The power of the written word is amamzing!
