Well I just saw a person on TV with a fly crawling all over their upturned palm whilst they continued what they were doing. … Continue reading Hypersensitivities
My External Demands
Today I went to the doctor with Sarah from Stepping Forward, to ask the doctor to write me a letter summarising all of my health issues and how the combination of them affects me. We wanted this for 2 things: PIP application and my upcoming court hearing. We wrote a draft letter with all the … Continue reading My External Demands
Lap Of The Gods
I forgot to mention that as well as having to start a new Launchpad application my Salvation Army support person is changing. 4th person in a year. And again it's happening just as my potential eviction date rushes upon me and having to get the Launchpad stuff done quickly. Communication has dried up. Just like … Continue reading Lap Of The Gods
Dealing With Fear Of Gaslighting
I am so terrified of not being understood, and being blamed, when it comes to circumstances holding me back.

I've been struggling for … Continue reading Dealing With Fear Of Gaslighting

The flat viewing went well, it basically looked exactly like in the photos.

Anyway there were five viewings in total and I was … Continue reading Flat Viewing

Could It Be Progress?
Oh my god, Sarah from Salvation Army just came round saying she had good news. I'd been waiting too expectantly on the letter from the court (to decide my 1-bed housing fate) which hadn't arrived, so I was intrigued. She'd spoken to another person at the council who has decided that since my birthday is … Continue reading Could It Be Progress?
