Day 216 – Positives

Had a meeting with Social Services today regarding help and support available for my PA personal budget to help with social isolation during the week. Learnt a few things, firstly that Equal Lives will help with the funding and recruitment of a PA, is there anything Equal Lives do not do, seriously without this company over the last year and more life would be much worse than it is now……….. It seems they really are the people you need to be in contact with at the point when your disability is becoming too much, or you need help with something.

Also means I could shortly be advertising for someone to be a paid social PA for me, helping me out with hot tub soaks, swimming trips or nights down the snooker club it won’t all be fun there may need to be help with drying and dressing so whilst the beer and snooker is a perk, I’m guessing the downside is the other. I was a little taken back when I was told it could be a friend or someone I know who doesn’t live with me, male or female – I think the boss may have something to say about me interviewing ladies to join me in the hot tub and help dress me afterwards, I did tell her not to worry I am expecting the applicant in tray to be empty, not the man I once was hahahaha 🙂

  1. Thank you for your kind words. I do not feel inspirational, more ordinary and a bit dull as a result of fate. I am slowly accepting life and trying to make the most of it 🙂
