Hi, just thought I’d ask how User Groups were going on these days. It’s a good while since anyones done a ‘post’.
So, how’s it going? Is your group dynamic or dying? Strong or struggling? Are your members fantastic or flagging?
Well, it’ll be good to hear your news, views & comments. Maybe now some groups have successfully become charities in their own right & can raise funds for fantastic activities & meetings. But maybe your having a hard time, encompassed with red tape, the NHS/DSC limiting or crushing your efforts into a crumbling pile of frustration.
I`m soldiering on as normal. My mobility is still virtually nil thanks to ongoing problems with my stump, which I have posted about before. On a more positive note after my melt down described in earlier posts, I finally have plastic surgeon consultation a week tomorrow. I am hoping beyond hope that a solution can be found to the pain I have caused by the lesions(sic) at the back on the fleshy part of my stump! I miss being active and also being able to put on leg and not be crippled by pain. My prosthetist is awaiting outcome of this appointment before recast etc as likely I need more surgery although as I`ve had a prescription for a `wet` leg for 4 years, I`m thinking baby steps lol.
Yours, the ever (trying to be) cheerful friend from the north Helen 🙂
PS-I`m not in any group apart from this, I think my nearest is about 50 miles away although I do occasionally see fellow limbless folk in my area I never have the guts to approach them.
