I have an apartment, one bedroom apartment and it’s great to have your own one bedroom apartment. Because, like I said, I’m very independent, I like doing everything on my own, I’ve been doing it my whole life, even in childhood. And so from the wreck, to the part when I learned how to be independent again was a struggle for me, because I’m not used to receiving help, or not welcoming help as much. So, yes, I have my one bedroom apartment, I guess I drive, I go to work. So, it’s is really not that many complications as in the home because everything is wheelchair accessible . And then I work out and stuff, so my upper body strength is pretty good. So, transferring, or lifting things, or reaching for things is not a problem because I have long arms so they come in handy.
