    Wetroom started today!

    Finally, after 6 months of chaos and going in circles they started my wetroom today.

    Slightly awkward as I woke to 4 builders in my bedroom (they are converting my ensuite) at 8am. My carer doesn't arrive until 9am, so I just watched the goings-on from my bed 🤣

    Not sure where I will wash or dress for the next three weeks.... already feel a bit stressed and overwhelmed, but can't wait to have a shower safely again 🙂
    Diagnosis confirmed Jan 2022 (age 46) after several years ignored/ misdiagnosed.

    Symptoms began in left foot 2017. Now mainly left side, speech and some loss on right side too.

    Unable to walk unaided (powerchair user), poor speech, left hand behaves like a drunk toddler but generally positive and determined.

    Hope the next 3 weeks pass quickly, it'll be great when it's done and you can shower safely.

      Claireflo - thank you. I'm both excited and a bit stressed. But it will make a massive difference. And I might get to enjoy my early morning builder visitors. Do you think they will bring me up a hot drink? 🤣

        TinyLady I am not sure of circumstances or if this is feasible but would you be able to get taken to a local leisure centre so you could use their shower washing facilities whilst the building work is ongoing? They usually have disabled access showers? x

          It will be worth it TinyLady when you can shower safely and in comfort.

          It is really hard, however having work people in your home when you need privacy. Hopefully they will respect this and you can tick off the days. In the meantime online shopping for shower gel and candles for your wetroom. Xx😘🤗

            It will be stressful but the end result will be so worth it. Don't like your chances of them bringing you a hot drink tho 🤣

            I had 22 weeks of bungalow renovation (to increase living space, increase bathroom, put a new kitchen in and an outside patio with ramps - with the aim of making life as easy as possible for my husband who uses a wheelchair. It was highly stressful with dust and constant banging but so worth it in the end.

              It will be sooo worth the hassle TinyLady - hopefully they'll be done a few days early 🤞🤞

              Any eye candy or do you only get to see somewhere to park a bike 😉😏

              Add some nice new fluffy towels to that shopping list xx

                Haha 😂 I had the same question as Ellie….any of the builders fit? It might make a nice start to each morning. 🤭

                  Awww, your comments have made me smile. Like the idea of some online shopping to distract me from the banging and get me some new "must have" accessories 😆

                  Claireflo - that is some serious work!! My wheelchair is sadly stuck downstairs. When I can no longer use my stairlift I will stay upstairs and abandon it. But hoping that is a long way off!

                  If the weather stays warm I think my hubby assumes a hose in the garden will suffice for washes in the next 3 weeks 🤣 but good idea to go elsewhere if I am struggling.

                  And finally, the builders are lovely, but I don't think my husband feels in the least bit threatened 🤣🤣🤣

                    While the weather is nice they can wheel you into the garden and hose you down 😎. Hope it all goes well and you are soon showering your posh new wet room.

                      Tony - exactly what my hubby says.... although when he first suggested it in February I was less keen 🤣

                        Good luck with the wet room, will be fab when it's done. We are in the process of doing ours too. xx
