It's The Little Things

Saturday, January 07, 2012

When you are obese, you have to adjust to use everyday things because the world is not designed for you. For example, I am using my iPad to do this entry and I need to use a stylus because my fingers are too big for the touchscreen icons. It is even worse when I try to type on my Kindle Fire and a major reason why I hate texting. When I use a public bathroom, I prefer the handicap stall because in a regular stall, it's hard to move around properly. Something I have become very used to is the oversized blood pressure cuff.

At yesterday's primary care doctor appointment, I had a new nurse. We were chatting so I didn't notice that she didn't swap out the cuff. After she took my BP, I saw here put the cuff back but she didn't swap it back to a regular cuff. "Did you use a regular size cuff on me?" she answered "Of course."

The cuff didn't pop off my arm!

That little thing made my day a little brighter.
