My Helping Hand

Last year, I was involved in rather serious auto accident that resulted in the loss of my right arm and both of my legs. I was married at the time, but my wife left me due to the severity of my condition. However, her mother and I have remained close. So close, in fact, that she now lives with me and is my primary care giver. I have learned how to be somewhat independent, but there are still some things that require help. The one thing that I like her to do is give me hand relief and shave my package. She accomplishes both of these in an extremely fantastic manner. I love the hand relief the best. I can do it myself, but it feels so much better when she does it. I refer to it as, "My helping hand."
