Having a severe disability doesn’t lend itself well to power outages

This entry originally appeared on my disability blog, I hate stairs.

The power is currently out at “I hate stairs” HQ. For Matt and I, power outages mean that our lives come to a grinding halt. Everything I do is on the computer and the Internet. We can’t even go to bed because we require air mattresses to relieve pressure points. Our chairs need to be charged every other night. Out ceiling lift needs to be charged every day. Not to mention Mississippi in the summer is hot an humid. So here’s to hoping the power kicks back on soon.

At least we can play on our phones. :-)
