Its working out very well having two support workers taking me shopping as it means Im there for less the time (as I can send one off to get some of my shopping while the other one stays close to me). Since Ive been doing that, I havent had any collapses at all again at the shops. Less time on my feet= no collapses . The issue is. this has taken extra time out of my support hours I would of used in the house. Im working on trying to get a wheelchair throu the system...as I would get one throu that if I had any other illness other then ME/CFS. (I dont have a lot of money either to be spending on things which people usually would be helped with by the agencies). I FINALLY got officially in a complaint to the Health and Community Services Complaints Commissioner (HCSCC) over the issues Ive had with this states disability services (DisabilitySA).. someone here nicely 2 months ago tried to proxy me in a written complaint over how Ive been treated (but the HCSCC said in response to the others complaint that I would have phone them and put in complaint myself..but then when I phoned them.. they wanted it all in writing from me.. so much for another advocating and taking a bit of stress off of me). Cause I took so long to do it after my phone call to try to put it in.. the HSCSCC phoned me back asking if I still wanted to go throu with the complaint. I told them how I was having issues putting it in (trying to get all the details together and do a good letter) so they posted me what they wrote from our phone call to approve if it was correct. There were thou things on it wrong (it may be cause I say things wrong at times) and things missing so more had to be added to it.. (due to my Aspergers I go on and on and was really struggling to put it together in the way they would of wanted.. so my boyfriend ended up having to help me and redo all I do). Anyway.. my complaint over my treament is now in with the health complaints commissioner. Things Im complaining about about Disability services to health complaints commissioner - they havent helped me to get a wheelchair or given me one (they've completely ignored that I get collapses) - I moved due to being told I'd have access to more services.. that hasnt so far been the case. I still cant get to my specilaist appointments. No case worker means I get any one when I ring trying to deal with my case and usually they know nothing about it and things have been left out of the file. -Disability services has refused to give me a case worker (thou nearly all their clients have one..Im deemed not worthy of one due to the CFS?.. it has to be that. (everyone in the health services I speak to say I should have one) - I complainted about the time it took for them to set me up with a new support agency when I moved. I gave them advance warning well before I moved on the dates and kept in contact with them while my move was happening but it took well over a month (maybe it was 2 months) before my home support was rearranged. - Thou its been 3 months since I moved.. my local disabilitySA office hasnt transfered my file over to my new disability office.. so right now Im a bit in limbo. (I rang the office today which holds my file as I have issues and they transfered me over to the new local office who dont know a thing about me). - Im complaining that the support time isnt enough and Im needing another hour at least (and that still wouldnt even cover the unpacking.. that would just cover the time Im having to use having the two workers, taking away from the help I used to get with making up a few spare meals for when Im not well enough to cook. (im back to skipping meals due to this). ......................................... Today.. my home support person didnt show up again and no one rang me to tell me she wouldnt be coming yet again.. that's the second time this has happened in one month. (last time he agency blamed their answering machine on not knowing she wasnt going to show up thou she said she seemed to leave the message with them fine). When I rang the home support agency (CSI) to ask them why she hasnt shown and to tell them I need someone here TODAY.. well they didnt even know I was getting home support from them at all (even thou Ive bhad a couple of new workers for a month now.. as once again the person who deals with my case was away (been sick all week) and nothing at all in my file has been updated so no one knew anything. So they said they would ring back after trying to find out what was going on.. so I was here waiting and an hour before they closed I decided to ring them back again. (in the past when Ive been told they would ring me back..they didnt). Anyway.. Im then told they dont have many support workers in my area so can not get me a replacement. **sighs** This means once again I'll loose some of my support hours as they wont be able to get anyone to make up on my lost time. Worst.. I had too much which needed to be done when support worker was here on Tuesday so it all didnt get done.. my floors are a mess and it had been planned to hence do them today.. I had an inch wide ant trail going across half my house and branching off in different directions..so have had to put ant rid and other things I tried to make up to kill the ants this week all over this trail. (and accidently stepping in ant poison cause I keep forgetting and step back onto it, gave me irritation on the bottom of my foot). 2 days ago I got taken shopping and its still not sorted out.. I had meat I was going to get the support worker to sort out today which has been in fridge for 2 days since then.. it needs to be bagged in separate bags to go into freezer. Cause the support worker was meant to show up today and I was goign to ask her to do that (while I was just resting), I did other cleaning things today before she was due to arrive and arent capable now of doing any more things other then sit here or go to bed... I wont be up to doing more till tomorrow. (so that meat may end up going off .. tomorrow I should be going and having more blood tests done .. (I was meant to have these ones done early Jan but never get time and I cannot cancel appointment of the specialist who wants them done yet again) and my medical stockings sorted out and by then I wont be able to do much else so cant see the meat getting sorted and frozen tomorrow either. I cannot keep up with it all or keep up with the constant hassels Im having.
