Disability Friends Repost Stress

I just feel so stressed out over certain things right now. Someone has to raise this point urgently.

From: Musings of a Trainee Battleaxe

I can’t relax or sleep at night because I’m stressed out over certain things right now. I’m upset that due to having a disability involving the PDA nature of Autism most likely means that people will chose to punish me rather than help me. That is an awful way to have to live. There will NEVER be support there but only punishment. There will always be HATE there but not love. I’ve read so many stories this week relating to those with the PDA profile of Autism literally coming home from school as a child or work as an adult (if they’re lucky enough to get employment) actually crying and saying that they deserve to die because others have made them feel extremely bad for their issues.

The Weekend Ends Here

Yet another boring weekend almost over. I’ve not been out of my flat since Friday. In fact Friday was a disaster! I was supposed to be meeting my Support Worker in local cafe at 11am. So 1030 comes and I go to leave. I put my key in the lock to open the door and the key jams! So there I am stuck in my flat unable to get out! Rang Council and they promised to send workman out by 1130!

So I rang my Support Worker, David, and explained what happened! It was an important meeting as well, as we were supposed to go over my Care Plan. We had to rearrange it for next Friday. Grrrr!

Workman arrived 1105 and took only 5 minutes to fix lock. A record for Newcastle-upon-Tyne Council workmen! Too late to save my appointment, I tootled off to the chemist to pick up prescription. Only to be told they didn’t have it in stock and no local chemist had any. Also the supplier was out of stock!

Hey Ho! Such is life!
