    Hi @sam12, we really hope today goes well for you and that they'll be able to help you with your foot. It is understandable you are anxious and you are doing so well to do this. I look forward to chatting with you later on :)

    Hi @sam12
    Ice is great to get the swelling down. Once you get that swelling down it will feel a bit better and you can move around easier.  Being in pain and struggling to get around can make anybody feel low.

    A cloth face cloth be ok won't it wrap it around foot better then ice which I haven't got
  • Chloe_ScopeChloe_Scope Administrator Posts: 8,472 Scope community team
    Hi Sam, do you have a plastic bottle? You could half fill it with water and put this in the freezer to freeze. This will be better for your foot then a cold cloth.

    I'm sorry to hear you are feeling anxious. I can imagine it's difficult when you are struggling to get around. I hope it starts to ease soon which will hopefully improve how you feel.

    Lots of people find it very hard to trust, especially if they’ve been let down in the past. I’m sorry you’re feeling in that position @sam12.
    How was your weekend?

    Is her care home far from you? That must be very difficult.

    I’m glad you rang the social worker and have arranged for them to see you.

    Is this something you could talk to your support worker about? They may be able to help you with getting there to visit your mum?

    It’s worth asking and seeing what they say, especially since they are trying to encourage you to go out. Let us know how you get on!
