Hi, I have a support worker because of circumstances.
I am the only person I know who has a support worker. This can really get me down and confused.
I have an acquired brain injury and depression. The effects of my brain injury are invisible - ie to do with mood and complex brain stuff. I know a few others who have (invisible, ie not in a wheelchair or walking with a stick) brain injuries but they have not got/chosen not to have a support worker. Possibly because of the soul destroying assessments and bureaucracy?
I was really struggling before the support worker came along. Now things are alot better. But I am having difficulty accepting this situation.
