Can your Carer not arrange a trip out, just in the garden or where you are or are you caught up in Bed ? Or is your condition making you Agoraphobic

Hello Stephen from leeds.What type if any distraction techniques do u have in ur life? I have Dystonia,which I get Dystonia storms which leaves me trapped in my body unable to use my limbs,speak n etc.Ive found distraction really helps me mentally n also physically,especially when others r around n I want "My time".

Do you read - do they bring you books or you could do online courses. It very difficult thing to think of things you can do at home but with help much can be achieved.
