I've needed some grab bars around the house for a very long time. I need them in both bathrooms and especially the shower and by the toilets. I fell last year in the shower and busted my stump back open and ended up back in the hospital. Now I've told her that I really need the appliances, but if you can believe this. She says that it will ruin the shower and the walls (WTF). And she'll have no part of them. Well what about me? I've got one damn leg and really need the assistance that these grab bars can provide. I guess that me falling and breaking something is not as important as the appearance of the bathroom. I just can't figure her out sometimes. She's been a fantastic wife throughout my illness, but now she's turned brain dead. I just can't figure out her obstinance on this subject. So I finally had enough the other day and ordered some grab bars from Amazon. So they arrived today and she through a royal sh!t fit. She was so mad that you would have thought that I ordered a mail order bride from Thailand. Something has to give here. You would think that she would encourage me to have these accessories. Sometime I just don't understand women. Well this story is far from over.
