Not really sure where I should post this so please bear with me. I have cerebral palsy and chronic mental health issues. I live alone but finding it extremely difficult to manage day to day living. This is due to both a combination of my physical impairment and mental state. My cp makes it impossible to have a bath (I have no shower) and things like taking rubbish to the bin is too difficult due to the weakness in my arms. I am severely depressed which makes it worse. E.g stopped washing clothes etc. Anyway am under the care of mental health team but they basically ignore my disability. I get very annoyed and they think I 'manage'. Psychiatrist did finally refer me for a home OT Assessment which apparently will be done by the mh team. I am so worried about letting them in my home its in a terrible state and I know I will be soon evicted if it doesn't get cleaned up. I'm terrified.
