I forgot to write at the time but I shall do now.
In the way my life has panned out, I haven't really had a great chance to be as independent with myself like many others like getting around on my own and things like that.
Some of the courses at my local Headway would mean I would have to get my mum to escourt me on the bus from our house to the ferry, get the ferry over to Portsmouth and then get the bus to the Mountbatten centre where Headway is located.
My Dad could drive me around to Portsmouth and that can be a longer trip. Plus also, there is the fact that he would have to take the time out of work to take me which I would not be happy about doing either.
Anyway, Headway set up a little system for me where they would send a volunteer to help me on the buses and ferry to get over to Mountbat, which is kind, and in time the more confident I get, I can hopefully go alone.
For the first few weeks, I went with the volunteer. I am starting to get more confident and I got the bus on my own to the ferry and met a friend there and we went to the Mountbatten centre together.
I haven't been used the bus on my own for over ten years, when I was going to college.
I did that OK and I have agreed with this volunteer that I shall meet her over at Portsmouth on Thursday. So I will be getting the bus and ferry myself :).
