for me it has been getting and using a wheelchair, just when I thought my life as I knew it had ended, and being housebound for months I decided to try the wheelchair. What a difference this has made to me, I am able to go out again and enjoy life and be part of the real world. I was very shy at first and hoped I would not see anyone I knew but now I don`t care it is a lifeline for me. Merry Christmas everyone I hope you all have better health in the coming year. Pat.
