Let’s go back to 8:10am today, Monday 18th October 2021……
I was ready…..
The kids were ready…..
The bags were ready…..
My wheelchair was ready…..
I closed the door and put in the key, which then did this……
I noticed the key was bent, looked at it, and next thing I know it is in two pieces in my hand. This is the last thing I needed as we were going to pick up Colby’s best mate on the way.
I had to think on my feet…. I came in, closed the door, pushed the sofa over the door and went out the back.
I sent Colby round to bring my wheelchair, it should have taken 30 seconds, instead they went the long way round and left me waiting, needless to say, I wasn’t impressed. They then had to just about jog to school so we were not late.
I got home and had to come through the back and get my chair through the kitchen which is a nightmare in itself when you have mobility issues.
The only key we now have is Dan’s and he is working, luckily my parents are grabbing the monkeys for me tonight.
I’m chilling on the sofa in my pjs and oodie watching tv.
Have a great week, see you soon
Lots of love xxx
Just a quick reminder – I am currently trying to raise money for a new electric wheelchair. Please go check my story out, and if you cannot donate can you please at least share for me. The link is https://gofund.me/03c3b97d
Do you ever feel like just giving up? Like you don’t know where to turn, who will be there for you, who will help you……. At the moment I feel like giving up.
Everything is getting me down at the moment, and my mental and physical health are suffering. I have no energy, I am sleeping less than I normally sleep (I only get 3-4 hours usually), I’m in pain, my anxiety is majorly high (I cannot stand being in the room as Dan and the kids when they are eating Etc, it makes me want to cry) and I know that I am holding my family back.
There is so much stuff the kids and Dan want to do, but because I cannot join in, they don’t get to do it. I know it stresses Dan out because he knows the effect it has on me mentally, and then there is Colb, he wants to do so much and when we are snuggling on a night he will say “mummy I want to do……… BUT I know you cannot”, to see his face and hear the crack in his voice makes me want to cry.
What’s the point in this post you may ask, well to be honest I don’t know, I am just letting my feelings out.
If you get chance please could you pop over to my gofundme? If you cannot donate can you please share for me, or if you know of any charities that might help can you send me their link.
Some of you might remember that I posted about wanting an all singing all dancing off-roading wheelchair I had seen, that was unfortunatly £11,000 to buy (here is a little reminder……
Since then I have several people asking me why I don’t set up a go fund me, and I have said, I didn’t post about the chair to be “begging for money” that really isn’t my thing, I HATE asking for help as all my friends will tell you.
We did set up a go fund me several months ago to buy my current chair – we got £15 – luckily I had money from my gran which meant I could buy one. It’s great, but doesn’t do off-road like I need.
So my question is, do I set up a go fund me, as several people have suggested/offered to set up for me, or not, and realistically how effective would it be, I’m not a big time blogger, I don’t make YouTube content, I only have 1.5k followers on Instagram and I just think it would be a flop.
