Number-one day-to-day living problem—pressure ulcers, a fear of.  I lay in bed only because there’s, you know, you have to develop a sitting tolerance, and I’m always fearful of pressure ulcers.  And if you don’t take care of something like that, I’ll tell you the reason why, I spent a year in bed because I had a stage two-stage three pressure ulcer, and it took me a year to get it healed.  A year mind you.  One day up a week, going back and forth to the doctor.  So now I’ve vowed never to get another one again.  And there were 15-16 years; I have not had a second pressure ulcer on my bottom side, only because I will not allow it to happen to me. I will not allow it to happen to me again.
