I have a disability I had a stroke 24 years ago I have that paralysis on my right side of my body no use of my right hand - I type with my left hand (excuse me for the typos lol.) I'm easy on the workers (that is what I call them) I have a list of things I need them to do, then when they are done I just put up with it these workers. I signed in this low-income organization I was eligible for the assistantce. With this company I get a different worker every week I'm not kidding either.
I have a harexpressing my feelings toward others but when I do "watch out" I blow up at the wrong person. I know it's just hard for me. I mean really what can a person do like myself do -the stroke did more that the paralysis on my thinking and decision-making to name a few.
My husband normally does the talking for me and makes it easy for me sinceI have a hard time expressing my feelings... at times. It doesn't help it when there are other stressors. I just need the encouragement a push literally.
I have health problems I have to deal with the chronic pain sciatica and fibromyalgia the anxiety and bipolar disorders. I'm desparte for advice.
Thank you for reading.

Geesh...all these typos. I had a nice visit with my son he is well mannered my ex is a good example under the circumstance things have been working out real good with him living with his dad. My husband and I moved to a apartment building...at the time my ex and I just went to court things were set where my son lived with in his dad now at the time my husband and I just applied for low-income housing two weeks later we get a phone call we have a appt to to look at the apartment. The thing is about the apartments are based 18 - older are elglible so things worked out. My ex is in the imilitary and CO (corrections officer) he has been in the military for about 16 years a good paycheck.
The doses of my meds are: Ativan 0.5 mg; Lamictal 100 mg; Risperdal 1mg., some of them I take two/three times a day It is nice to see familar face and the same as Sweet Lemon and the rest mentioned. I hard time expressing my feelings when it comes to making decisions it's like Thursday before the came woman here I was still waking up...we talked a while I know it is my fault I didn't say anything to her I guess it was the fact I got a new worker.. oh my god a different girl I mean for the Monday and Weds got the same girl and then on Thursday a different girl...which is what happen this past Thursday. I think I have come to terms I'm going to talk to the case worker about this changing these workers everyday this has to stop.
These case workers tell me I have so many hours a month if I don't use these hours I will lose help...I think well it's your problems, you know. I get 4-5 hours three days out a week we have a small apartment so there is so much you can do. Now on the days I have a doctors appt and grocery store, etc. Anyway, the main thing is basically be assertative but I'm afraid that it comes out the at wrong way. The one thing that bothers me, is when they talk and cimplain at whatever..."get to work!" See what I mean? I have a list of things they can go by daily. There are days I don't feel like talking, you know?
I think I wrote a book. Again thank you for the warm welcome.
