There is another frustration that happened. I would be either leaving a room or back at my chair and I said oh no I forgot this or that. Hobbling around on one leg is no joke and it is tiring. So before you leave an area look around to make sure you are not forgetting anything because you don’t want to have to go back and get an essential item you left behind.
You need to keep setting yourself up each day. As you think of things that would make your situation easier keep making adjustments. For example, I just happen to have brought on sale toilet paper and paper towels. But they do you no good if you can’t get at them. Make sure that a few rolls of toilet paper are right there at your reach. I had one roll of paper towels in a plastic bag right by me because just in case I spill something I have it especially when I was eating.
That’s another thing you want to set up. Where are you going to eat and what are you going to use? My kitchen table was part of my command central. Well for me it also has my printer on it which takes up space. So looking around your house and asking whoever will be coming over to set you up with things that will make it easy for you to be in your house by yourself.
I used two things: one was a glass bowl with a good lid top on it for my cereal and plastic containers with a tight lid to put my soups in. It worked for me because it was a good size to be able to put it in my pouch bag on my walker so that I could get to my seat. It worked great.
