I made a visa run on crutches once - Thai immigration were accommodating and put me to the front of lines

I'm now seriously contemplating doing the same ....

Ohh you poor dear, had an accident, very easy to be judgemental.

Well i am judgemental, because your broken leg is sod all compared to what i have been through.

You say you cannot do this, cannot do that BS.

i HAVE TITANIUM SCAFFOLDING in my back, holding me together, no balance, paraplegic, does that stop me..... No way, i feed cows/ turkeys/ hens/ fish, grow veg.

Go out on my scooter ( HAVE TO BE STRAPPED IN) because if not i fall over.

Go shopping alone, do as much as i possibly can, dont sit there being negative, like you, i get out and do things.

You were married and had friends that helped and still help.

Could you have achieved what you have without help, even in the short term.

 

I never said I had a broken leg!

What a pathetic comment, so you are comparing paraplegia with a broken leg.

I'm comparing to someone who had help and someone who didn't.

Who suffered what is immaterial.

Well Tanoshi, you said you couldn't get crutches, so it's reasonable to think you had a broken leg.

Lazada is great for just about anything and pay COD they will come to your door. When I was out of action and couldn't get out I just ordered food n beer through tesco on line.

Carried by two paramedics who then took the wheelchair as it came out of the Ambulance.

 

You've obviously never been involved in an accident, in new living accommodation, in a new Country, where you knew nobody, and not even time to explore the town.

Very easy to be judgemental of others when you've never found yourself in that situation.

Well partly wrong and surprised you would be as silly to suggest as much. I have had an accident here, my accommodation is not new but nor particularly old, I doubt you knew nobody. Anyhow, this all stemmed from you claiming crutches were impossible to obtain. It appears you failed to plan ahead and got tipped onto your floor by some paramedics and locked in.

From Pattaya expats announcement.

 

"Tesco Pattaya North Pharmacy dept have a section with wheelchairs at 3,750 to buy. They also have a large selection of mobility devices, sticks strollers crutches. Other Tesco outlets may have the same but I did not check."

And if you cannot find what you want there, cross North Rd and pop into Fascino. But be careful, or you really will need a wheelchair.

Unbelievable :clap2:

 

You obviously only travel to destinations where you already have friends or family for support.

How boring!

Not with a broken ankle I don't, that would be silly. 

Not to an upstairs apartment with a broken ankle either. A hotel is better, where they have plenty of people who can help!

Also Lazada has almost anything that a disabled person requires, i.e. wheelchairs, crutches, lifting sheets,walking aids.

No need to moan about being unable to get out, everything is there just using the internet, delivered to your door c.o.d.

Anyone moaning, i am/was unable to get out and get things is talking nonsense, just looking for sympathy.

Yes, I know you have a lot of mobility issues and I have a very good friend who handles MS and leads a full life that puts me to shame.
