I had a day off from work and decided to make the most of the weather as it was a lovely day. I decided to take my bike out for a ride, perhaps I should of stayed at home..
At around mid day I was involved in a road traffic accident, the outcome was not good. I suffered a Severe spinal injury at the T3 level which has left me paralysed from the chest down. I had surgery to secure my spine as one of my vertebrate had shattered,I now have two metal rods and a load of screws holding everything in place. I spent nearly six months in the spinal ward at Oswestry Hospital, I couldn't of been anywhere better.
I was discharged from hospital 20/06/2013, I came home with a loan chair from the hospital which is very heavy and cumbersome.
I had been measured in early April buy my local wheelchair services who were at the hospital at the time. They sent me a chair for when I got home but unfortunately the chair was wrong, it was to small for me and was unsuitable for what I wanted to do.
I got in touch with wheel chair services and arranged a meeting.
I met with them in July, they weighed and measured me again.
Nothing happened, after numerous phone calls they eventually came to my house in November. Guess what, they measured me again..
It's now January 2014 and I still have no wheelchair of my own, I have given up all faith and hope of receiving a chair from them.
I am now trying to raise the money I need to get a chair of my own, a chair that will allow me to get on with my life and enjoy some of the simple things I used to do.
Please help if you can, even if you can't afford to donate sharing my post will help..
Many thanks Jonnie bick..
