I'm totally swollen, like really bad all over. My bathroom is not wheelchair accessible and as of yesterday, I am not able to climb up onto the toilet so I've been using a bed pan on the floor to pee in (50 million times a day) and using a step stool that I feel unsafe on to get on the toilet for BMs (which thankfully is only once a day and timed perfect that there is somebody here just in case I fall.) I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and I'm almost considering asking my doctor to admit me. I'm concerned about my blood pressure because I can feel it go up when I do any type of activity, even just walking from my bedroom to the bathroom, or transfering from my wheelchair to the couch. My mom thinks it would be a good idea to be admitted, and Ken just wants me to be ok and he'll go along with whatever. So I don't know... Anybody have any suggestions?
