Inside her world…….

Happy Easter to you all!

I have attempted this update in my head several times but couldn’t get it written down.

Let’s start with Molly, I can only tell you what I see and what my gut tells me. From the outside looking in she has improved so much, a long recovery period and the transitioning to her new home has been some journey for her. I admire and totally respect her resilience and strength she is different but amazing! I wish she could tell what to write, I wish she could communicate what she thinks and feels, I wish I truly knew if she is happy, if she feels safe, I want to know, what does she understand? Smiles, laughter and a little bit of chatter are all good signs and so reassuring!

There are times when I am reassured however mostly I think about her and wonder how she is many times throughout a day and when I lie still at night the palpitations come and I am reminded to think of something else. I constantly listen to podcasts to distract my trail of thought – my phone battery is forever flat!

I met a nurse from Edenwood today I was reminded of how they touch people’s lives In the work that they do. I think I’ll pop up with some eggs for Easter 🐣 and plan for them to visit Mollys new home soon. It will be nice for them to see how the plan I always talked about to them has came to fruition.

I also want to inform all unpaid carers that they entitled to have a Carers Assessment, this will hopefully result in you receiving a sum of funding to support you in someway positive for your well being.

A carer’s assessment is the council’s way of working out whether you qualify for support from them in your role as unpaid carer. The assessment is a chance for you to discuss how your caring responsibilities affect you. It will also look at: whether you’re willing and able to carry on providing care.

 

Who is considered a carer? A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give however is unpaid.
Back to Molly, the slimming world healthy eating plan is working, I think she may get her 1/2 stone or more this week!
She only went and got slimmer of the week!! 8.5 lbs lost in three weeks!
Term time only services and bank holidays play havoc with routines, all you living with Autism will fully understand the impact of change and how you can’t always have same old same old…..
I miss Molly so much but I know she would be ok if anything happened to me and if she didn’t have a disability she wouldn’t of wanted to live her Mother forever anyway!!
Would she Will Prince??????
Welcoming Bec’s to Mount View tomorrow – such exciting great news – at last this project is supporting others! 💓

Molly’s off to Boccia – get in there Molly and enjoy – onwards and upwards….. let’s start living!!

Luv C x
