I feel like I owe you readers an explanation on why I’ve been MIA as of late. It hasn’t just been on WP that nothing has been posted, pretty much everything’s been neglected by me. More details will be gone over in June’s personal post, but I can say that personal issues and having to make the bathroom my office since Sunday really threw off my game
Each new wheelchair I get is subjected to tests by me to see how well they hold up. They aren’t bashed around, crashed etc. the chairs are my legs so I don’t go to that extreme with the testing, though younger me would! No, the thing I’m curious enough to test is battery life and how many days the chairs can go on one charge.
Before doing a test like this, it needs to be taken into account how far you go, will there be outdoor activities, like drives to the store, park or where ever & so on. These factors are important to me when I test the batteries, because I don’t wanna get caught out somewhere with a dead chair. Enough babbling, onto the point! 🙂
After charging the chair two Mondays ago, the stress test around the house was on. Two days in, full charge, three days, same, & even though it started dipping on the fourth, I expected that, but the test kept going. This past Tuesday the test ended with the chair doing a week and one day on a single charge, an awesome return, better than that old clunker! 🙂
There are so many things that I’m plotting for subjects to post here, from news about the new chair to anime and story rewrites that I kind of dropped off a bit, sorry. 😦
If you ask some of the first followers I have about my outlook on life with a disability, they’d point you to some of my old posts. Well, let’s get to the topic at hand! ^_^ When a few people see me in person, they just assume just because I’m in the wheelchair, my brain doesn’t work, treating me like I’m three years old and talk to me as such. However when I respond and ask, “Da hell are you on, I’m not brainless!” they realize that omg, sorry, then start treating me like I’m human.
With that said, there are those morons who still persist and treat me like I’m retarded. Kid you not, could tell them I write and they would say, “Oh course you do, sweetie, god bless you.” Um, god? when did he get into this, idiot!? Even when I tell people that I game on PC with just one hand, the replies I get are all of disbelief to “I’m lying.
Something was posted to you tube last week, not as a poster, but to prove though you have limits, you can do anything! Watch below! 🙂
As of yesterday, shortly after 12:30pm, my new wheelchair was delivered & since than, a smile has been plastered on my face! My readers, you have no idea how good it feels being in a new 2018 set of wheels after so long in a piece of ****, I can’t express how happy I am!
Swear the new chair is rocking some tech right out of something you saw if you watched Knight Rider in the 80s. Below are pics of the control display, but let me say this thing is more like a computer than the rust bucket! I have a clock on the screen, my miles per hour, five profiles with various speeds, (profile 1 has been named my indoor mode) and a tilt/recline feature, which will be used when I wanna nap! 🙂
Sorry if the pictures are a lil blurred, holding webcam and filming is not my strong suit. 🙂 With that said, from the first shot I hope you see the power bars, clock and MPH icon. What did I tell ya, some space age stuff! 😛 The second and third pics are of the tilt/recline features, which are easy to operate from my control stick.
Haven’t given the chair a test yet, but did try out the fastest profile & holy shit, that made me glad my seat belt was on!!! Need a flat straight surface to do that shit because a bumpy sidewalk is too hard on the butt to speeeed down! 😛
Held off posting this personal blog post until today due to yesterday being April Fools and & really don’t dig that day. Anyway, there is a lot that went on in March that needs “cleaning out” so let us start with the semi good news.
Last Tuesday, wanting to find out where my new chair is, and mainly knowing my doctor would try bitching at me for not having it, the place I went through for ordering it was called. The lady told me that the vendor requested more parts, but it “could” be delivered this week. I’ll believe it if it comes. If it does show up, it’ll be a sight for sore eyes, because as I reported Sat./Sun. Due to my footrest being turned weird, my ankle’s screwed some that I cannot put weight on it some days.
As of late, the old sleep cycle has been loopy, making me short tempered. See years ago, a former care provider use to take off all night with guys she shacked us up with all night, leaving me to wonder if I lay down, would she be around to get me up? She did this A LOT & now my nephew does the same with the girl he has on Facebook, or he tells me he won’t be out all night, but returns at 6am. I say what if I need him? His answer? Call, but if there’s a fire or break in, what then? See my point? Not saying don’t have fun, just THINK!
When he pulls this, I game to get my mind straight. Well, Thursday night to Friday morning when my nephew dipped to be with his bunny, online matches were attempted on Tekken 7, but a opponent I got matched with was a complete try hard who just pinned me to a wall, beating my ass, so I quit the match. You got to understand that I don’t like one sided matches, if I’m in a close fight & lose I’ll take the loss, might be salty, but I take it. After, his friend friend requested me on Steam to bitch me out, read below to see some of what this fool spouted.
“HEY, WHY DID YOU RAGE QUIT ON MY FRIEND, FAGGOT?!!! YOU SHOULD JUST QUIT GAMING, YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!!”
As of now, a break’s being taken from said game due to fools like him and his kind.
Last bit of news before I wrap up. Most have read that after our female pitbull passed, her puppy wanted to attack me at any chance. Well, lately he has been coming to me, wanting ,e to pet him, putting his nose under my hand and getting it on his head. Not sure what changed, but it’s cool! 🙂
This great news came down the pipeline two Mondays ago! I’ve reported that insurance would only pay three grand of the forty six grand, leaving me to pay the difference. Mom & dad MUST be looking out for me because the company I’m going through to get it is covering the balance!
Yep, I don’t need to pay a thing! 🙂 If you readers could’ve seen my face when I found out! As of now the chair is on order and hopefully will get here when the warm weather comes!
For those who are new to my bloggy here, I usually do a personal post at the start of each month as a way of cleansing my mind and let you into my thoughts. It also lets you know what’s coming etc. So without further words, let me begin!
It needs to be put out there that the wheelchair issue has stressed me out & when I took steps to resolve it myself, I got my head cut off. I called my sister who’s my Power of Attorney and her answer is to get me back on Medicaid to pickup the slack of what Medicare won’t cover, but she fails to see the state has denied me 4 other times to get state insurance, so I see no point in retrying. Even if granted, it might take awhile to kick in.
There is Easter Seals that help people like me get things such as wheelchairs & I tried telling her that yesterday, but trying to get points across with her can’t be done!
In other, more happier news, I can now get back into Tekken 7 if I want, which the rust shows on me badly! Tried a few online matches and my butt was beaten, slaughtered and destroyed, so two friendly matches with a “friend” were tried. Check below, but in the matches, he acted as if they were a tournament, try harding me! Yes, the game’s competitive, I get it, but crap man…
(You may need to tweak you tube’s settings to get the videos to play all of the way through). Would you readers like to see more?
As for Anime stuff. I do plan on a post on RWRBY, (Hope that’s right) among other anime related goodness! 🙂 Might take a night to binge Trigun, because a review was promised for a year?
Lastly: Stories will still be posted here, but my clause will be put up, due to a fantasy blogger linking to the Sailor Moon crossover without asking. Hopefully that will stop that.
