A DAILY BATTLE
After the recent backlash online, Abby has had a difficult few years.
Before her battle for health She was sentenced to 366 days in prison in 2017 after being convicted of bankruptcy fraud.
Instead of being in a prison cell, she is now confined to her wheelchair from the moment she wakes up.
“For me, getting up is like a complete physical workout. Just putting on underwear and putting on pants, I have to do it all lying down while I’m in bed,” she explained her routine to The US Sun in March.
“I have to exercise for about 40 minutes before I can even swing my legs to stand up.”
Santa Monica is also difficult to navigate because it is not as accessible to people with disabilities, she said.
To make things easier, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, native has a home health plan where her physical therapist visits her twice a week.
She also does occupational therapy, has visits from a nurse and takes medication for her pain and the onset of her diabetes.
Other than that, she doesn’t have a spouse – her dating life is “non-existent” – or a close family member who lives with her.
“Everything is a workout — opening the fridge, trying to do laundry, reaching into the washing machine,” Abby said.
She added that her recovery has suffered a setback since her “major surgery” due to tibial fib surgery.
She tries to stand, especially while watching TV, but she “can’t really manage to stand for more than a minute.”
Her goal is to get out of the wheelchair and use a walker again, which she did before her leg accident.
