U are all so great and qt i must confess it is an EPIC BATTLE not to flirt with u all on a daily basis!
scuse the shitty cameraphone pic. I made this splint for my PIP joint today with ~my beautiful welder~ because i keep spraining my finger when typing. i have been wearing it all day and have not stuffed up my finger once! it actually feels amazing to have some finger stability and ngl I think the round 2mm wire was a good choice because it doesn’t dig in at all.
first time i’ve used the arc welder in AGES because of being ill with chest infection & stuff. tomorrow i am finally going to work with GOLD! which will be slightly terrifying as it’s not exactly a cheap metal lol when i think of how much an inch of gold wire costs i basically weep into my pillow.
Alright my fellow disabled community, I have questions on whether this is a good idea or not.
As you may or may not know I use a walker to walk about 150 feet a night (or every other or every third) to keep from getting blood clots and dying. It’s a very standard cliche walker and at first it was the only one I could use, since I was dragging my legs too much. I’m doing a bit better off and on and I’m thinking of getting a rollator. That way, I would actually be able to walk inside a couple shops here and there and I could sit on the seat while waiting in line or if I get tired and I would still be able to carry stuff.
This is the type I’m thinking about getting. http://www.spinlife.com/Nova-GetGo-Rolling-Walkers-W/Handbrakes/spec.cfm?productID=2174#.UZmckaNKDac
I’d second the suggestion to get one with 8” wheels as it’s much better on outdoor surfaces. Being able to sit on the seat when you need to is seriously AMAZING and will likely give you a lot more freedom when you go out and the basket is really useful as well.
This one is very similar to the one I have: http://www.mobsol.com.au/p/1152736/seat-walker-care-quip-trekker-duo-3737.html although it’s an Australian website so I’m not sure how much use it will be to you. It can actually be used as a temporary attendant chair as well, so if you need to be pushed a short distance you can be. (That being said I certainly wouldn’t recommend it as an attendant chair for anything other than the shortest of trips on the smoothest of surfaces because its nowhere near as comfortable as a wheelchair, it’s just not designed to fulfil the same function.)

i shouldn’t find that as hilarious as i do but omg gill’s way of putting things is pretty amazing
oh man i’m rewatching season 3 of scott and bailey and it’s basically just breaking my sad little heart all over again bc of KNOWING WHAT HAPPENS and WHO THE MOLE IS and aaaah :(
why must the family break up like this :C
i just want a nice night’s sleep at a normal hour.
i don’t really need to see your pornstar gifs in the hypermobility tag tbh
SO my first night of cpap was a disaster because i kept taking it off in my sleep
my second night was a disaster because i was awake for hours with it on as i got uncomfortably aware of my own rubbish breathing (if i don’t pay attention to my breathing i end up actually forgetting to inhale or exhale even when i’m awake) and couldn’t get to sleep until i took it off and had a valium
my third night (last night) was a disaster because i dislocated multiple joints and couldn’t get to sleep at all bc of pain BUT the cpap suddenly became very comfortable indeed
and today at about 8.30am i went to sleep with it on for about five/six hours before i woke up so i consider that a success!!!!!
ofc now my sleep pattern is completely disrupted and idek how i’m going to get to sleep tonight because i didn’t wake up until about 2pm
but who cares, VICTORY
ugh having to be professional sucks
omg it really does
especially when you’re in a cheerfully rood mood and just want to let people know that they’re really annoying
