Got OT coming at last. Thanks everyone :o)

I just wanted to thank all the people on this site who give such great advice every day.

I've been strugeling with simple things like a bath for a few years now, my husband lifts me in and out and I spoke to my GP prob 12mth ago about it and she said maybe I should call social services but when I got home I was to afraid to having had probs with being called a fraud before I couln't face it.

After reading all the blogs ect.. on this site however I decided to just be brave and call them and they were lovely and said I definatly qualify for help and will have a home visit very soon to see what they can do to make my life easier, I'm so glad I found this site you all inspire me to stick up for myself and not just hide away as I have done for so long so again thanks everyone!!!! :o)

  • i didnt find it easy to ask for help, it took my 2 yrs to admit I was really ill, it also nearly cost me my 36yr marriage my hubby had a breakdown, it was only when his councellor told me to get the help I obviously needed.that I contacted OT they decided to get me a social worker, and that soon got things moving

  • Hi jessy it was my stepmum who phoned social services for me and i was abit angry at the time, but they came out within days and had loads sorted for me.

    hope you get everything you need, dont hold back, tell them everything.
