I know, I know I have been slacking lately in my writing recently but have been relatively busy and having stuff to deal with!
Firstly, I went away for a few days whilst my parents enjoyed a mini-break in Prague (lucky things!), A friend of mine, kindly offered to let me stay with her, and I had a great time – it was lovely to have a break from the house, also known as ‘my prison’ and basically have a change of scenery. The day my parents went away, was all a bit of a rush as in the morning I had an appointment at my local GP’s office for a wheelchair. Now I am all measured up for my own wheelchair which I am hoping will give me more independence and will enable me to go out for longer periods of time.
And after, I came back from my break the hunt began for a personal assistant for myself. An employee whom I can hire via a grant given by the local council. With this I can employ a person to support me and take me on trips into the community and so on.
And yesterday I had two interviews with the applicants whom applied for the position – both were excellent and were extremely nice, as well as experience caring for others. And now I have chosen one with whom I felt more rapport. And soon I will be going out more, and really looking forward to start swimming regularly at my local swimming pool, hoping that it will help with the spasticity in my legs and ease the severe discomfort.
Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention that I have been nominated for a 2012 WEGO Health Activist Award!! I have been nominated in the ‘Miss/Mr Congeniality Award’ which is awarded ‘to someone who always has a kind word, a positive note, and a virtual hug’!!
So, whoever it was who nominated me thank you so much!!
