Hello Kizzy Kazaer

Since my  fall I have moved in to a house with a stair lift a big problem is I have to ask one of the girl's/support staff to wipe my arse I am not over embarrassed. It's just one of those thing's that make disability so much fun (ha ha). Christmas eve will be emotional for me as it will be 49 year's to the day since my accident happenned

Sorry you've had a nasty accident like that  >hugs<  - can't help thinking you should have been somewhere with a stairlift in the first place.... Hopefully the technical issues will be shortlived and that your injuries don't stop you enjoying your Christmas dinner  >x-fingers< >pudding<

Polar bears don't want to fly they want to live.

(I know the photo is humours but I had to make the serious point)

I keep thinking about how much more difficult it is to live a environmentally green life when you are disabled. If only we could get the super rich to think about such things.

Disability Q and A / Re: Independent Living Items at supermarkets/mail order.

Aldi have my undying gratitude over something they don't sell as being for disabled but solved a problem.

I have attentional memory problems (i.e. I'm scatterbrained) and I'm also not terribly safe in general with cooking.  Previous experiences include full-thickness burns and blowing up a microwave on convection setting.  On advice from others, I bought from Aldi a little counter-top oven with top and bottom heating elements (grill and bake).  It has short legs and vents on all sides, including the base.  It has turn-dials like a cheap microwave.  It cools really fast when the dial goes 'ping'. The 'safety' cooker of my dreams.  Ever since then, I've looked not just at the stuff they sell as independent living or whatever, but other stuff, because they have some really simple, practical items.  Sometimes trying to produce an item that's cheap but reliable (to  match the image Aldi and Lidl like to project) also produces an item perfect for people that have special needs of one sort or another.

It looks to me like the Americans have a different name for gutter crutches but I will add the video because it has some good tips for new users  >hugs<
