More things I have learnt from physio - mainly notes to self. I suspect [personal profile] hagar_972 and [personal profile] taennyn may have useful experience here, where I'm just starting out on the same journey they've already been on.

Muscles in the thigh - VMO, lateralis, the big quad one, the sartorius one across, adductors on the inside, abductors on the outside. VMO needs extra strengthening due to hypermobility. The small stabilising muscles tend to give up, then the big muscles compensate, and that's why my hamstrings get tight all the time. Then the hip/bum ones like glute max and glute mede also need help, particularly the latter.

Making sure things activate in the right order is hard. If the lateralis activates before the VMO instead of at the same time, then my kneecap slides sideways and that's one of the reasons it hurts. Trying to activate the VMO first will retrain it so they both go at the same time.

Your first wheelchair by [personal profile] kaberett was brilliant for helping me upgrade from Shopmobility's hire chair to something designed for active use and being pushed by the person in it rather than a carer.

The Spinal Cord Injury Empowerment Project by the University of Washington has excellent videos on wheelchair skills. The American accent and cheery tone grates after a while, but it's very useful info and nicely bite-sized.

So this week has sucked.


SO.

We are hosting a cuddle party over in our musebox community [community profile] realfantasia.

Since we're doing it musebox-style basically anything goes (you can be yourself(ves), or a character).

There are two parts:

Part 1: is kid-friendly and clothing-or-bathing-suit-on for humanoids

Part 2: is consentually clothing-optional for humanoids

About this Journal

Our Lost Prophet is a backup / secondary journal that may eventually have more content here. At that time, there will be actual stuff in this box perhaps.
