Getting a wheelchair I think

I’ve talked to my mom about getting a wheelchair again. She has seemed very reluctant to admit I need one, but it turned out it was a bit more complicated than that. She was kind of excited to get me a lightweight manual chair that we can use to go shopping or museums and stuff. So am I to be honest. Lasting more than ten minutes in a shopping centre and not crashing after would be great.

Probably not me?

Thing is, she didn’t want me to have a big outdoor electric chair. I don’t particularly want a big chair, but living in Norway we have winters and a smaller electric chair might not work very well on snow. Apparently she’s afraid I’ll get into an accident. To be fair they are fast and my reaction time is not brilliant any more. I refuse to drive a car these days, I’m terrified I’ll hit someone or something.

I’ll talk to my doctor next visit and start the process. I might get an evaluation team to come asses what I need the most. I think a lightweight collapsable chair is what I need, and I’ve seen some with helper motors on their wheels which might be good for me.

 

Summer is here with a venegance

Holy crap  it’s been sooo hot. It’s luckily better today, and I’m not melting any more.

My mom has helped me with my balcony so it’s clean and I have a few plants coming along in my balcony boxes. They are just little ones that haven’t got any flowers on them yet, but I’ll take a picture when they start blooming. For now, here is a picture of my very comfy but oh so painfully eighties rattan chairs:

I’m going to reupholster them when I have a bit more energy I think.
