I can’t remember the last time I had a proper nights sleep free from worry and pain. I wrote the following Tweet thread this morning and am looking forward to discovering how things develop over the coming weeks… There are so many other things that I could write about to highlight the incompetence of Local Authorities when dealing with disabled people with high support needs although I am running on empty this morning, so the following will have to do for now:
05:11 this morning, I had to phone my 68-year-old Dad to rescue me even though both of his hands are riddled with arthritis. He literally can not and should not be having to do such call outs. WCBC should be ashamed of themselves for failing in their duty of care.
I can not wear my hand splints or a t-bar under my knees to keep my legs straight because then I wouldn’t be able to move at all at night. My dexterity is therefore getting worse and my legs give me agony at night. All this could be sorted easily with proper 24/7 care. 2/3
I am now counting on
@fmwales and @JulieMorganLAB to show that the new look @WelshLabour has empathy and understanding at its core. One thing for certain is that I am going no where until Welsh Labour members who passed a motion to #SaveWILG have their voices heard. 3/3
