    Good morning Lizzie. Iím glad that you found this forum and that itís already helping you. That was a great decision to do voice banking so soon.

    Weíve been self isolating for 14 days now. We do internet food shopping that takes determination because delivery slots are seldom available. My husbands son delivered us some food keeping his distance from us. He lives 50 minutes drive away from us so we donít want to call on him unless absolutely necessary. Our window cleaner and my OT have offered to shop for us,

    Iím having some helpful tech installed for me on Wednesday, next week. Iíll be able to operate some lights, our tv, the radio, my iPad and my phone by an infrared headset. My OT and I think eye gaze would be better but Iím greatful for any help. We need a different door before I can have control of it.

    Iím very stressed about the current pandemic, not only for myself, but my children, grandchildren, my great granddaughter, my brothers and my sister.
