There's Plenty of Time for Rest When I'm Dead

17th February 2020

There's Plenty of Time for Rest When I'm Dead


I didn’t sleep very well last night, flashbacks to the historical abuse plus nightmares of being set on fire and being stabbed were the order of the day. Nothing unusual about that but I sustained a fall whilst going to the toilet which meant I had a ‘watery’ mess to clean up. 

By the time Support Worker (Claire) arrived on site at 0930 I was already feeling tired and disorientated. Claire supported me with my care and social needs. With Claire’s support we attended the gym before processing the mail and other administrative tasks, we scheduled appointments, Claire resolved some problems and completed other tasks. 

By the time Claire left at 14.30 I was exhausted with brain fatigue and was in need of a rest. 
Medical professionals frequently tell me that I should rest more but I’m not very good at resting and there’s plenty of time for rest when I’m dead.  

Support Worker Dipak arrived on site at 16.30.
Dipak looked after me until the end of her shift.
