I am home, came home with a bag full of medication, a raised plastic toilet seat, and two crutches 1 had arm support for my broken arm. I cant do anything for myself needing 24hr care. As I am single my daughter and her boyfriend move in, rest of family helping out no end.
I lead a busy life prior to this working fulltime and had a good social life, the accident caused this life to come to a full stop! for how long i didnt know, not long i hoped.
I found it very difficult not being able to do anything for myself, one of the worst for me was not being able to have a bath, the physio's had told me it would be ages untill i could get in the bath, unbeknown to them i had two strong inventive daughters. I am sure had it not been me that was trying to lay in a nice hot bath the scene would have been very funny. They sat me on a stool by the side of the bath, deciding they better not put any water in the bath as this would then be slippery, so they wrapped my arm in plastic bags, one lifted my legs and the other my body into a cold bath, then went on to turn on the cold tap!!! my screams turned to "oh this is so lovely" once the hot tap went on.
