Extra PA hours

So I have good news! This morning I got a call from my coordinator who runs the PA service I am recieving. She told me she’d managed to get me an extra hour a week, right now, I get six hours, but she managed to get me 1 extra hour. Its not much, but its better than nothing. So she told me to talk to Amanda, and ask her what we could do, and see how we wanted to progress with this and then get back to her when we’d decided how we want to use the hour. So I talked with Amanda, and we decided we’d split my hours, and do 2.5 hours on a tuesday morning, and 2.5 on Friday mornings. So thats our plan, amanda has to sort it out with her job, she works for an organisation that helps disabled people as well as working as a PA. So if she can sort it so they’ll give her Tuesday mornings off, then we’re all set. I am happy I got the extra hour. It will be good, it means I can do housework on one morning, and maybe grocery shopping on the other morning. I really do need more hours than I currently have, but one extra is better than no extra hours.

Its Friday!

Happy friday all! Have a great weekend wherever you are in the world!
I love that its friday! Weekends are my absolute favourite time!
So much time to chill, relax and unwind!
Hope you all have a splendid day!

My PA is coming at 9, we’re just going to do some housework, my house needs a good cleaning! She has the flu, so she probably isnt up for doing much of anything. I offered her a day off, but she said she’d be fine, and she’d come to work.
Im volunteering in the afternoon as I usually do on Fridays. I will then be going to mom and dads for the weekend!
So thats my plan!
Have a great friday and a fantastic weekend, do tell me what you are going to get up to!

Catching up with my friend rose

I just had a long 2 hour marathon chat with my friend rose just now. She called me to check up on me. She had texted earlier to ask if I was ok. She said she felt I wasnt and so she was just checking on me to make sure. That was so nice of her. She knows me well so she knows when I am not doing ok. She said she felt I wasnt telling her the truth about how I was really doing. I guess I wasnt. I’m always so afraid of bothering people with my stuff. I dont want to put myself upon anyone so I say nothing. I would rather protect others from what I am going through. Even though Rose and me have been friends for going on six years now. If you remember a while back she tried to OD and I called the ambulance for her.
We had a good chat. It was so nice to catch up. I am glad she called me. It made me feel good. I feel cared about and understood. There is no judging from her, she just gets it, probably because she also is going through similar struggles to me.
I value my friends very much. I am so grateful for all of them and the support they offer to me.

Struggling

I am really struggling tonight. Is anyone around? If your up and awake I could use some support right now.
My head is spinning. I am so anxious.
I slept for 2 or 3 hours but that was it.
Its almost 1 AM now and I am awake. I am dissociating a lot tonight. Losing time a lot.
I forgot my meds again tonight. Its too late now to take them.
If anyones around send me a hug or a prayer that I will be ok.

Update on my issues with wordpress!

I have an update on the wordpress issue, you know the one where it is asking you to log in on certain sites to comment and do other stuff?
My friend sent in a support ticket to the wordpress team, and so did I!
Well the support team got back to us!
They said to clear the web history on the computer, clear the cookies, and the info on what sites you visit, and then go back to the wordpress site and try to comment or do what you want to do!
That seemed to work! Not sure about my mac yet as havent tried it on the mac, but it works on my phone and laptop!
Yay! So glad its resolved! Just passing on the info in case any of you want to try it out!
If you google how to delete the web history and cookies on whatever browser your using you’ll find instructions on how to do it!
I hope you have the same success that I did!

WordPress issues?

Is anyone having this issue?
When I go to a blog hosted on its own domain, I am asked to log in, even though I am already logged in.
It happens on all of my devices, my phone, mac and pc.
I can comment but it gives me an option to log in! Its really weird! Anyone having this issue?
It seems since wordpress updated its been happening!
If anyone knows anything let me know!
Can you possibly also post a ticket into wordpress support to ask what is going on? If a lot of people post support requests in maybe they’ll solve it!
I’ll live in hope!

Work went well today!

had a great shift at friendly call this afternoon! went in around 1:30 or so. another volunteer had done some of my calls for me. so i only had half the amount to do that I’d normally do. All of my clients were in good spirits! One lady had just come out of hospital, she had a mini stroke, she’s doing a lot better now, another of them was in hospital, after being shifted in there on Wednesday, she’d been very ill last week and my supervisor had gone to her house and taken her to the doctor. Other than those two though mostly everyone was ok, and doing well. I was happy to hear it. I got to speak with one lady who I hadnt spoken to in a few months. She’s gone into a nursing home now but she still gets a call each day. Today when I phoned her she picked up, usually she doesnt. So I got to see how she was doing which was so nice. It was so nice to touch base and hear her voice. She got a little confused and kept calling me the wrong name, but I just let it go. I knew she was just confused and its part of her illness. There is a girl on placement in the office at the moment for 12 weeks, a student, she’s studying to be a public health nurse, she’s really nice. She asked me today if I’d be willing to be interviewed for her research she’s doing, I said I would help her out if I can. So over all a good day. I got home around 4 PM, ate dinner and now am going to just chill for the rest of this evening.
