I have tried to get comfortable so writing can begin, or continue; however, my seat doesn’t like sitting.
Yes, I sit a lot. I am in a power wheelchair and it is my legs and sometimes my bed. Sometimes the bottom has a way of getting upset, and once it is upset it does not appreciate any sort of sitting. I bet there have been hundreds of position changes today and they all last for about fifteen minutes at a time. I am lucky, though, because I don’t have any pressure sores or problem areas I can call attention to directly. Still, when you can’t sit comfortably for any length of time you can’t read, write, watch TV, play a video game, or even just relax.
A few minutes ago I stood and rearranged the skid cloth in the bottom of my chair and made sure there weren’t any wrinkles. Wrinkles are the worst. When you sit on a wrinkle in a piece of fabric it feels as if you are sitting on a big stick you can’t shift from!
Standing in general helps, and I made sure to stand up several times through today, as I usually do. I even stood longer to see if that would help. It hasn’t, because I have to sit right back down.
Lay down, you say? Yes, I could lie down, but I can’t type from a prone position.
Tomorrow, fingers crossed, will be a better sitting day.
