    Black eyes Mnd group

    I just tried to join the club but I failed.

    Going into the gym on the ramp to the fire doors and a chap inside opened the double doors. I backed up a bit and felt the wheelchair beginning to tip. It was in slow motion but the whole thing fell off the ramp sideways and ended up on the ground.

    I screamed for a half a minute out of shock. I knew that I was OKish and about 6 strong men came out to help.

    They carried me into the gym and stood me up so that I could hold the ladder and then get on my chair.

    Damaged the lightwriter heavy scratches and some on my newish wheelchair.

    Banged and scratched the side of my head, shoulder, elbow, hip and knee. Nothing serious but I will be sore on that side for a week.

    Got ice packs on drinking coffee in bestro area and not exercising at moment, might do a bit in a while.

    Not quite sure how I can contribute to the group, I did try recording a synthesised voice and altering the timing and pitch to sing but failed.

    Love Terry

    It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

    Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.

    Some people will do anything to be manhandled by 6 muscle men in gym gear

    That does sound sore TC - you're running out of lives, please be careful!!!

    Heal soon.

    Love Ellie.

    Thanks Chimp,

    I was hoping for 6 strong women but I only got one and that's my wife.

    Just done some exercises and things seem to be working OK but have sore upper ribs that could cause more problems. Just bruised or muscle strain.

    It's been over two years since I have been on the floor or at ground level, it's quite nice down there but have to find a better way of getting there.

    Love Terry

    Hi Terry
    So sorry about your fall... it sounds very sore and a fall is such a shock!

    I really hope you feel better soon and I appreciate the advice you have given me.

    Take Care,
    Love Debbie x

    Beggars can't be choosers... Take what your offered, eh??

    Keep an eye on the ribs, take it easy.

    I'd hate to see you and Barry out together - you two need an advanced driving course I'd happily do it. I could never hold a note, so can't be in the band, but I could parallel park into a postage stamp sized spot in seconds!!

    Yes, that's what I am hoping because he has been rather housebound for some time now. xx

    Maybe I should take my own advise about being near curbs and drops , LOL.

    Ellie, I could parallel park into a postage stamp sized spot in half a second!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But I would hit both cars.

    Great that hubby has got the wheelchair today Fru and I hope his out side in it.

    Love Terry

    You got the better deal Terry, one strong woman is the equivalent of 6 strong men.

    Cool cats always land on their feet...stay cool TopCat, and I hope your not too battered, and bruised, keep an eye your ribs, and relieved its not a black eye.

    Feel better fast

    Sending big hugs, and some kisses for the boo,boos XOXO
