This month I ordered some things to help me around the house. I already have 3 grabbers.

I got a stool for the shower. This is a very nice stool. It is sturdy and I might order another one for the kitchen. Although I don't think they thought through the "rotating seat". It has stops under it, so it won't rotate when you don't want it too. That is a designed safety feature. But in order to disengage the stop you have to lift the seat about half an inch. Which means I can't possibly turn it while I'm sitting on it. Since it is a stool (with no back or sides) the only purpose of a rotating seat is to turn without standing up, which I can't do because of the stops. So basically it isn't a rotating stool. Well, It's a good thing I don't really need to rotate in the shower.

The other item I ordered was a cushion for my seat on the couch. I am hoping it will help me get up from the couch with less pain. It arrived today. I feel very tall now. But also my chest hurts. It's like sitting taller has taken all my back support. Or maybe it's because I have to look down at my computer now.

I'll see how that works.

OSHA

Keyboards are supposed to be at a height where your arms are down at your side and bent forward at the elbow. Monitors are supposed to have the top of the screen at eye level. Laptops are in general bad for prolonged use because having one of the two at the proper level pretty much guarantees the other is at the wrong level. Take breaks when you can. <3

Re: OSHA

I think I am more comfortable with my arms higher than that. When I ordered a custom drum I had it built taller than most people like it. Being short, I'm used to things being high for me.
