Back in 2013 there was a topic regarding this problem, i.e. now how can I put this delicately, one sits on the toilet and either immediately or later as one tries to stand up, one ends up with ones trousers round ones ankles.
problem 1. This is a trip hazard.
problem 2. If you are tall with a tendency towards very low blood pressure leaning forward and down to pick them up is a balance/ trip hazard.
solutions suggested at the time included braces, mechanical grabbers and other fancy ideas.
if you include the putting the trousers on in the morning before the meds have kicked in problem, if one sits and leans forward, dizziness ensues as does the seemingly inevitable foot going down the wrong leg scenario. Balancing on one leg, even by bracing that leg against the bed is a bit dangerous.
A friend suggested an simple solution, one that was best suited for use at home although it is 2017, we live in enlightened times. My friend said "Wear a skirt."
a simple wraparound skirt, fastening on either side.
advantage 1: easy to put on, no need to worry which leg ones foot has gone down, just wrap it round, fasten it each side. No perilous balancing..
advantage 2. When one uses the loo in a seated position simply 'hoick' the bottom of the skirt up, tuck it in the waist band and proceed.
At no point is the skirt a trip hazard, nor fumblinly and lengthly to achieve.. surely in these gender spectrum awareness days wearing a skirt to assist our condition is acceptable. It's not like my friend is suggesting wearing stockings or high heels with it.
the Samoan rugby squad look very manly in theirs national costume - google Samoan Rugby Squad.
so the question is my friend's idea; genius or foolish?
