Being disabled just sucks but what makes it more cumbersome is something just out of your reach.  As happens quite regularly, a visitor comes by to visit,  bringing with them a gift, a newspaper, a book which naturally they put down before they leave which is usually 10 inches out of my reach.

Suggestion:   Make a space within reach labeled Gifts for (Disabled Person)

The other frustrating thing is that every day tools are out of reach.

Suggestion: Use a shower bag to hold toothpaste, toothbrush, mouth wash, etc and attach to hospital bed with metal shower hooks.  Also a cup or basin would help with tooth brushing.

More later . . .
