On a good day, with 2 hours of Supoort during the day and overnight support I manage to do the following things.
On a very good day (1-2 days a week)
The exhaustion is so complete that most days I can’t watch TV because I find the brightness and noise overloading and I can’t follow what is happening. I very rarely play video games. For entertainment I listen to audiobooks, podcasts and when possible I do colouring or play with Lego etc.
This is not how I want to live. I spend 85% of my waking hours managing extreme anxiety as I am home alone and feeling unsafe, exhausted and overloaded.
My productive time is very limited. So I focus the time carefully.
Here are my proudest achievements of the last 3 months.
I am proud of these achievements as daily life is such a struggle. I have achieved what I have despite my living environment and health and only due to the phenomenal support of my friends. I am very tired.
2016 is an uncertain time for me. I need to reconsider my housing again as the current approach is hard to sustain. I might return to supported living so I can move forward with developing living skills and regains the energy currently wasted on daily anxiety.
