    Today, for the first time, i felt disabled

    Yesterday i went to a meeting where there is a Home Bargains, a pet shop and a Morrisons. Done lots of times before, already learned to put much less in each bag, and ask for help when buying large bags of dog food.

    So what madeyesterday different? Recently, i have been leaving a trolley dolly in the car (used in supermarket trolleys). This time, i found it attached to the keyring with a large oyster clasp. Up to a little while ago, that hadn't been too much of a problem, yesterday............Eek!

    i spent a few frustrating minutes trying to open the oyster to get the trolley dolly off. Even using my teeth did not help. Finalyy released it, then dropped the *****blessed***** thing. That was another reminder of recent changes - picking small things up is becoming impossible!

    So, today i am determined to find a miniature litter picker (none on Amazon) and using lint rollers to pick up tiny bits. Must complete my attendance allowance application and apply for a blue badge. Another small step along the road. Thank goodness i can still drive! i wonder for how long?

    Sad to say but it's one more step to acceptance.

            Soon as you get your blue badge apply for parking space if you need one. I applied in October and still waiting and this is supposed to be fast tracked.
            when i can think of something profound i will update this.
