  2. Hi

    What can I say friend's of our's try for year's for a child and no luck then you hear of this happening and all the other sad thing's we read on this site and we are told there is a God out there somewhere I only hope there is and that he helps that young baby some people that have children do not deserve them as in this case.

    Hi

    When I said that I sometimes read rather than add a post that was my personal opinion and when I said sometimes I add a post and it looks like I am the only one that is interested in it that is still my personal opinion.I didn't mean that all other's should do the same as me. As (Muz) so kindly quoted me and said if all people did that there wouldn't much written on this site I am sure you would make up for it Muz.This is not a dig at you Muz as I find your post's well most of them very interesting.

    Hi

    I only post if I want to know something or if somebody asks a question that I know the answer to. I always remember seeing the actor Michael Cain talking on TV he said when he first went to Hollywood he met John Wayne. And John Wayne told him some good advice he said stand up speak up and shut up.So sometimes I think it's better to read post's than to put a post on this site that might only be of interest to me.Sometimes I might put a post that I think might be of interest to others and it's not.

    Hi

    It's a TV program so if you feel it's not right after watching it once dont watch it again i watch it and know that it's made for TV to make you get annoyed with some of the people in it (ie) Charlie but i would think most of what we see as been edited out of context to what he as said it makes good Television.As for disabled helping each other i think that is a good thing we have all heard of the blind leading the blind that is happening sometimes on this show well done to all of them they are not talking about it they are doing it.

    Hi

    Life is what you make of it or how other's try to make your life. whether you do thing's that please you or you do thing's to please other's you cant please all the people all the time so you might as well do thing's that please you first then think of the other people.I dont mean you to be selfish but always think you are equal to anybody else.As I say as one door closes another slams in your face so just show them get up and dust yourself down and get going again.

    Hi Pam.

    I know what you mean about pain.I am AKA and most day's it hurts but when I mention it at my limb centre they say it looks alright to them and they sometimes make a small adjustment but that is about all.Perhaps I should complain a bit more.My covering on my false leg looks like Nora Batty's stocking's I have only had 2 cast's made in nearly 4 year's I see some of you have had many more than me in under a year I am only on my second leg in nearly 4 year's I to would like to wear a skirt but with this leg No thank you the other year when I asked about a new leg I was told they were on a very tight budget.I hope things get better for you Pam at least you keep trying if i find a magic cure I will let you know.

    Kind regards Pat.

    Hi

    I know what you mean about people being surprised when I was out with my husband at a dog show. I needed to walk over to the other side of the hall I was holding my husband arm when my leg just gave way I just fell to the floor not hurt but people came running over to help John pick me up i was laughing and one man said stay still you have dislocated your knee i couldn't tell him for laughing that it was a false leg and it had locked when he realized he had a good laugh to.It's nice when we can give someone a good laugh.

  12. Hi

    Just back from the funeral.The person that died was my nephew well when i say nephew he was more like a brother he was just over a year younger than me,as i said before i came from a broken marriage and it was only this year i found my younger sister but i already had a sister 20 years older than me and it was her that brought me up so i grew up with my nephew who was really like a brother to me.My sister lost her husband 7 years ago and now her son i was holding her hand at the funeral when she tried to get up and go to her son when the curtain was drawn at the crematorium so sad to see a mother want to go with her son but understandable.I feel better for telling someone about today,Thank's.

  13. Hi Chakra.

    Welcome it wont matter what people tell you it will be you that makes the decision to start to see you are the same person now as you were before your accident,we all change in our minds we think others are looking at us may be they are but what does that matter we get use to it and so will they.I am an AKA. Some of my friend are BK. I was BK. once and wish i still was because being BK. is a lot better than AKA. you still have your knee joint.So try and think positive I know it is very hard at the moment but you will get there.I look at some of my friends and they have lost both leg's and I think how lucky I am.My daughter had to have her face completely rebuilt ie plastic surgery and now my girl looks perfect.All the best you will get there in the end.

    Hi Muz.

    Sorry to hear of your bad luck.If you remember my bag was taken from my wheelchair early this year I lost money & cards but what hurt most was a letter about my Dad who died when I was in my teens and a necklace that my late brother had given me they mean nothing to the person that as taken them but the world to us.May those things that brought us good luck bring those Git's bad luck.

    Regards Pat.
