Meeting With Johanneke.

Fish Circus.
Eileen Agar.

Today I have a meeting with Johanneke, my occupational therapist to assess how I sit in the wheelchair.

It will be good for her to assess this; as it could be that there are some adjustments needed.

The wheelchair seat was adapted in November 2009, so I might need some additional support now.

Johanneke will also talk with me about my problems with using my laptop, right now this maybe difficult to assess.

In the mornings my fingers work ok, with problems, these are caused by not being able to control my fingers.

By the evening I can hardly do anything, my left index finger can not click on anything and using the mouse is impossible.

Because my capabilities come and go, it maybe difficult for Johanneke to judge what I need right now.

I have tried the Head Mouse, which seemed to cause problems with my neck hernia, voice recognition, not bad but does not help navigate between applications.

Now I am using the pre –emptive keyboard, which is frustrating, as it selects all the letters that I come near.

It would be brilliant if Johanneke recommends software that allows me to keep writing my blog.

It would be very difficult for all of us if you could not blog anymore. I hope Johanneke can come up with an answer for you. My husband loaded Skype for Linux for me, but it will be awhile before I get the peripherals I need to use it. Patience is good.

Hi Webster,
It would be horrible if I can not blog anymore, I will do everything that I can to keep blogging.
Hopefully Johanneke can help.

Hi Gareth,
The appointment was useful and will result in more support in the w/chair.
Cyril is ok now, it shocked him alot.
Good to hear you had time in the garden.
