    I’m just waiting for home adaptations including through floor lift, bathroom etc. Just waiting on a date, hopefully it won’t be too long. Janette x

    Hi Janette,

    So sorry about your fall . Its such a horrible feeling when you know you're going but can't stop yourself and it really knocks your confidence.

    Great news about your powechair. Like most of us I resisted having one but it gives me so much more independence around the house and outside. Like you say it's important to feel safe.

    Having said that we went to the park today. Having insisted I was perfectly fine to cross the grass I proceeded to get stuck in the mud. We were both laughing until it dawned on us we were in a spot of bother . Luckily I managed to skid out of it .

    Take care Janette and I hope you don't have to wait too long for your chair,
    Love Debbie x
    Thanks Debbie, I can’t wait now I’ve stayed in way too long, and I’ll remember about the grass 😂 you take care too Love Janette x

    Just got back from assessment it’s all good news I was approved for powerchair, they said I can use it now indoors and soon as my adaptations on the house are done then I can use it outdoors, I can’t believe how confident I was trying it out, I think it’s because I felt safe in it Janette x
