Hi, my name is Red54!
Family try to help. After a period of Time they begin to talk for you. Or enter conversations with Social Services and hold conversations about you then start accepting Social service proposals without any discussion with yourself. Then all organisations believe your not able or allowed to make decisions for yourself. Then Social Services approach your family to contact your doctor with them and try to have you sectioned and unable to enter an option that would be listened too. This is what happened to myself in March their also working on my older sibling now, saying I'm making dangerous decisions. Basically decisions that Social Services don't agree with. Yes the decisions do leave me in precarious positions physically, however my mental health and physical disabilities are kept on an an even keel if managed 😕 my way. In the long term; I'm aware its to dangerous to continue past a couple of days. There are other options I'm sure.... but Domiciliary care has been proven not to work and generally leaves me in the catatonic state after a few days...... Where do we go from here?
