Firstly the good news I had my second visit from the Adult Social Services OT this morning, I have been shattered since but thought a little blog was needed. I know there is a stigma surrounding social services but I can honestly say it has been the best thing I have done. SHe has been fully understanding of a number of difficulties I face, the amount of support I get/have/need, issues surrounding the layout of the bungalow access from the front so many things real jack of all trades. She has been wonderful filling in one of the monstrous forms I’d been terrifying and delaying doing myself and although there is still a lot to be decided, the funding for one thing (more forms and a lot of pricing up work fortunately not by me too) and feasibility I’m really glad I referred myself.
I’ve found out so many new things and been given some great advice. I’ve been shattered ever since she left and been dozing ever since, I can’t remember when holding conversations became so exhausting and both phyysically and menntally tiring. I know its all partt of my pain and the meds I take but I’m seriously knackered after holding 45 minutes of conversation.
I know I will have forgotten so much off what we talked about today so will wrrite more about it when I get her assesssment and we start doing some of the things we discussed but glad I’ve started the process.
