Happy Happy Happy!!
After 5 Years, 9 Operations, and Countless referals... Ive finally got myself a OT!!! And she is BRILLIANT!!!!
She came out to see me on Friday.. And she couldnt have done more to help my home situation!
Here's what she asked.
What is your condition,
How does it affect your day/day life
What can you do
What cant you do
How can we help
Well to cut a long story short, she has agreed to install alot of equipment.
I struggle to get in and out of bed - Apparently it is 7 inches to low, so she is going to install a bed raiser and 0 hoop to it to aid me.
I physically cant get in and out of the bath and at 19 its a bit embarrasing to have to wear a bikini in the bath so my dad can lift me in and out, so she has got an inflatable bath chair for me.
The walls in my house are rubbish and cant hold a hand rail so she is getting medway rails installed.
I live in a council property and have to climb 28 stairs to get to my front door, and they only have a right side hand rail on them.. Which i cant use because I have no grip or strength in my right arm.. So she is making the council install a left side hand rail.
Its taken some time to get them but now that I know they are there coming I am so happy!
I have learnt now to never give up if you need something.
