What I've been doing

I had some problems with my internet, it's all been fixed now though.

So here's what I've been doing since last time I blogged;


  • Talked to an orthopede, which I will talk more about later on
  • Watched the 4 seasons of Sons of Anarchy
  • Talked to my boss about working from home in the future
  • Checked out the rehabilitation centre
I thought I'd just update you shortly, I will blog more about this in the future but I don't have the time for that right now.

Hi dear readers, this is just a short message to tell you that I am currently have problems with my internet.

This means I can't be active in my blog right now, which is bad as I just started with the blog. But please, be patient. I will compensate for this in the future with tons of good read.


Thank you!

Evaluation by orthopede

Hi!

This is just a quick update about the rehabilitation centre I wrote about earlier as I've heard some more.

I will be evaluated by an orthopede and some other fancy doctors before they decide where and when I should go. I will blog about this as soon as I know anything more.

I've been sent some questions in private about my accident, some people wants to know what happend and how it changed my life. So I will take some time and make a new site about this in the blog so anyone who's curious about this can find out.

Also - I'm not offended by these questions so please just keep asking, I knew these would come and I would ask too if I followed a blog (certainly with a name like mine, hehe).

You can send the questions here in public or on twitter, I will also be setting up an Facebook page for those who don't use Twitter. When that's done it'll be announced on the blog.

I feel like I should say something funny now, but I'm sorry I have nothing right now. Just wanted update about this rehabilitation thingy for those who are interested.

Nice to see that I've got so many followers all of a sudden, glad to see that people enjoy reading. I do my best to entertain you, if there's anything I can change please do tell as I try to improve all the time.

Thanks for reading!

Rehabilitation centre

My doctor just called me and said I would be sent to a rehabilitation centre in the near future, there I will work hard with my rehab to be able to walk sooner.

This sounds really good to me so I had to write about it. I don't have any more information about this right now but I will update when I do.


I go to rehab two times a week usually, but apparently I'm supposed to try some harder work now. Maybe I'm ready for that?


Have you heard any exciting news?

Bedtime

Going to bed right now, had a nice day.

Keep asking me questions please :-)

Good night.

The car I drive

Hey!

How do I get around? With a car!

How?

I own a customized car which enables me to use the throttle and break with my hands. I have a customized Toyota Prius.

It looks kind of like this;

When I drive I need to bring a friend though, so he can help me get back in my wheelchair. 

Thanks!

Thanks for all the nice comments!

I really appreciate it and it gives me motivation to keep going.


And as always, feel free to ask anything :-)

An update

Hey dear readers!

I was downtown today and got my haircut, feels great!

I had some funny experiences today. First one was when I passed some kids in my wheelchair. They tried to bully me like kids usually do, calling me a loser and stuff because I'm in a wheelchair. Unfortunately for them, a friend I met there is a teacher at the school they go to. He said he would inform their parents about their behaviour. I'm not affected by those who look down on people in a wheelchair, so their insult had no effect except they'll have their parents yelling at them in a couple of days. :-D

Something I remember from Family Guy (spoiler alert) is when Joe purposely falls out of his wheelchair and struggles to get back in it, the prisonguards are looking away because they think it's awkward. I decided I would try out something like this today when I were looking at new shoes.

So, I went in to a mall and cruised into a shoe shop. I casually looked at some converse and decided I would try them on. Then I fell out of my wheelchair, I moaned and called for help, some looked awkwardly away and some paniced and ran to help me. This gained me a laugh and some nice service by the shop staff.

I ended up buying two pairs of converse!


One question I got earlier was what kind of handicap I have.

I were in an accident and my legs aren't movable yet, I've been through some surgeries and there are more to come. My doctor is optimistic about me being able to walk again, I have a lot of rehabilitation work ahead to do though. So, I'm not really paralyzed, but I can't use my legs. And with hard work I might be able to walk normally which obviously a long term goal of mine.


If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Going to bed

I'm gonna go to bed now, gotta get up early tomorrow. Getting a haircut and have some errands in the city.

I would like to thank everyone who follows me, and welcome them and every potential follower!

Tomorrow I will do my best to get a new design for the blog, and also share some stories with you. So the serious blogging will start tomorrow. You could ask questions now if you want, and I will answer them in the next post.

Good night!

About me

This is pasted from the page "About me".

Hello dear reader!

My name is James and I am handicaped, I was in an accident 2 years ago and I am now in a wheelchair.

Even though I can't walk properly right now I am positive about my life, I have nice friends and a nice life in general. My interests are music, soccer, friends and partying (even though that's not the easiest thing in a wheelchair)

In this blog I will share my day with you, I hope to find some nice followers to talk to. After all, talking to people on the internet is easier then talking to my real life friends.

If you have any questions, feel free to talk to me. Thanks!


If you have any questions, feel free to ask me right now. Thanks!
