As most of you know I am currently a plus size patient, and that is a whole new outlook on life. Being scraped up out of the dirt by the EMS crew, spending a week being reliant on a crew of nurses to move me, and do everything for me. Now having to get around without the use of arms is quite daunting!
So, just saying, it has changed my view a little, being a patient is hard work, are you fit enough? If, fingers crossed that it never happens, but IF, you end up in the hospital, can you face the thought of being a BIG burden to others?
Just think about it, that's all
