I made a hard decision today. It's scary, but I have started the process of getting a wheelchair.
Yesterday morning, the previous 8 days had yielded three falls for me. Two that I didn't break anything, but twisted an ankle and got a bad bruise. Yesterday, I had two falls within two hours of each other. Another twisted ankle (other side this time), and the second time, I landed right on my tailbone.
I don't know how long the process is going to take, but I'm waiting for a call from my doctor. He has to write me a scrip, then I can take it to Binson's and they say that they can process the request; He said that BCBS should cover it and that it doesn't take too long.
I don't want to really need it and then find out that it takes four months or more to get. I'd rather have it already here when the time comes. But I'm afraid that the time is very near. The day I have dreaded for about 3-1/2 years is almost here.
I don't know how, but I will get through this somehow!
