I called my boyfriend who was still at home and he confirmed that it was on my dressing table. I don't know how or why I forgot it as it's the most important thing, (I went back to get it, obviously) but I had enough makeup with me to paint thirty people for a year; so at least I had one of the other most important things with me.

Now, I'm someone that suffers terribly with their hands and I have been unable to use my hoist independently for well over a year. My boyfriend comes everywhere with me so my powerchair can get in and out of the car; he even accompanied me for a coffee date with a friend, but waited in the car. As much as I appreciate him doing that, he really shouldn't have to.
