In 2011 I was working when I felt ill,I had a vibrating in my ear and a dull ache in my head I called the Dr to see if I could get a appointment the receptionist told me 2 weeks time she could hear in my voice the disappointment she then asked what the problem was, I began to tell her she put me on hold then came back to tell me the Dr will see you now if you can get here, I drove 15 minutes to the surgery once I arrived when I got out of the van I found I was walking to the right instead of straight , once inside thr Dr was waiting for me he examined me but I was getting worse my right hand was numb and I could no longer hold my car keys in my hand, he told me he was calling a ambulance and called my husband who was picking up the grandchildren from school, his reaction was but I have only just left her at work, the ambulance arrived and took me to the Princess of Wales hospital where I was given a injection that would disburse the blood clot and prevent long term brain damage, I was in hospital for 8 weeks 2 of which I was unable to do anything for myself, gradually things started to come back and with a lot of physo, I was unable to walk to the bathroom and had to wait for a chair which was called a steady chair, we use to share this with the mens ward . Some mornings I would be busting but had to wait for the chair, I use to think when I get out of here I will buy one of theses chairs, after 8 weeks I left the hospital where I had a further 3 months care in my own home. 

Now after 2 yrs I would like to fulfill my promise to myself and buy a chair the cost is £1500 for one.

please help me
