Re: hypnosis

I'm a little skeptical about whether hypnosis works at all, but in saying that, I would try it for phobia cures... Bathmophobia is taking over my life and I've had enough of it at this point...

Sorry I couldn't be more help, hope you find what you're looking for

Operation

Got to the hospital this morning to be told that my op was cancelled because my surgeon has gone to india, and it was too short notice to contact me and let me know. (even though he went FRIDAY!!!)

Got it rescheduled for Wednesday, hopefully it wont be put back again!

Re: Please mind the gap...

A bit of both, upper body strength is important in being able to get anywhere, particularly with slopes no matter how minor they seem when walking, what I find quite odd, is that my arms have become really muscular since being in the chair, but I have trouble picking up an Argos catalogue lol But co...

Re: Please mind the gap...

I would assume an electric chair would be much easier to control, but being that I havent used one I couldnt say for sure. My problems are with a standard manual chair, but if I ever get my wish of an electric one, will be interesting to see how much of a difference in control it has.

Re: Please mind the gap...

It has its moments... Trying to keep both rear wheels moving at different speeds gets awkward, if both rear wheels go at the same speed, with all the dips and potholes along the pavement (and there's A LOT) you end up either spinning in circles or ending up off the path (exceptionally irritating), t...

Re: Please mind the gap...

lol, but in all seriousness, when I say one and only I'm not wrong... because of the chair I have additional problems with my shoulders, moving along a path where there are driveways is a nightmare as going in a straight line across a slope is so difficult, I usually end up in the road, and having f...

Happy New Year

Twas the month after Christmas and all through the house, nothing would fit me, not even a blouse, the stuffing I'd nibbled, the turkey I'd taste, the yummies I'd eaten, gone straight to my waist. The wine and the mince pies, the bread and the cheese.... I should have just said...."no, thank yo...
