Re: Lack of Fulfillment/Quality of Life after becoming disabled

I understand your chemical sensitivity. It can be very hard to adapt. One thing I've done is remove as many chemicals from my house as possible. I clean my house totally with organic cleansers. My clothes are washed in an organic detergent. I've found that the fewer chemicals I'm exposed to on a reg...

Re: Empathy and compassion

My life is on a roller coaster. The therapy for my PTSD is opening some buried hurts that I need to deal with while my physical problems are increasing.

Re: Electrical Engineer guy looking for people to chat with

Howdy mobility_mods,
Yes being isolated physically, mentally out both from a disability is draining to the soul.
If you can please join us in the chatroom. It is basically socializing but if you need information we share what we know. It is a great place to make friends.

Re: Feedback on mobility scooters

It could at least tell you the nearest place to get something. Also help you remember where you parked you car.

However since they are used inside also it could be confusing to the GPS.

Re: Feedback on mobility scooters

I didn't find a place to comment on your site. You left out one very nice scooter that is light weight but will carry a heavier person. That is the Travelscoot. It even breaks down to fit the size of carry on luggage.

Re: New Lady But not so New

You are a very active person.  That is great. There are several different learning "disabilities".  I don't really like calling them disabilities because that kind of says you are disable to learn.  The truth is that you learn differently.  A simple point in fact. 12 years ago I met a young boy in f...

Re: .d.e.a.t.h.?

Oh boy, you would ask which philosophers.  It's been decades since I studies philosophy and have had brain damage and drugs that have scrambled my brain since then.  I could call my son and ask him since he is in the middle of studying it, but then he would want to talk about it and not sure my brai...

Re: Let's Be Friendly!

I'm sorry my dear friend.  I truly understand the frustration of knowing it isn't going to get better and hearing people say I hope your feeling better, or ask if your feeling better.

Re: Let's Be Friendly!

Dear Ragman,
I haven't seen you in the chatroom.  I have asked about you and nobody knew anything.  I'm so glad you are feeling better.  I don't make it in as often as I was before.  I'll try to get in more.

Re: .d.e.a.t.h.?

MissZee. You are in great company with those thoughts.  Many great philosophers have asked those same questions. I used to ask them too.  Now I don't worry about it.  I figure even if I'm a frog dreaming I'm a person I want to live what life I have here and now so I'll have no regrets when it's over.
