Pre injury I had an amazing life, for sure.
Does that mean it was exprensive to lead ? Well no, not at all. I always did everything as cheaply as I could ( because that was ENGRAINED in me by my parents) and I always saw economy as the way to do things – and I was not well off, so I didn’t.
Now I live according to my means still. I do lots for sure, but I never go to restaurants ( ever ) and always get the cheapest ‘ seats ‘ possible for everything. I smuggle in drink where I can, and if I have to I ‘ use’ the wheelchair card’ to save money.
I see that card abused so very often by others and don’t comment though, though it’s hard not to sometimes, people are such benefit frauds.
Overall I spend probably less than I used to by far, as I now am forced to pay for a Carer, so I have far less.
If you have any sense at at all, would you act any differently?
