Struggling to come to terms with your disability
Hi hi my name is Pauline & 11yrs ago I got up to make a cup of tea burst a disc which caused sever nerve damage. I ended up walking with crutches which brought problems of their own but I carried on as best I could, 6 month ago things took another turn for the worse & I now using a wheelchair full time. I’m really struggling to come to terms with this as my house isn’t wheelchair accessible & I’m having to move. Is there anyone who has been threw something similar who can give me tips on how to get back to being me PLEASE pxx
