We are almost at the end of another year. This year has been different to other years for most but for me you could say it mirrored times when I was much younger.
When I was little I spent many months in hospital with my gut. We had to be careful as any illness could have an impact on my stomach.
So this year for many like me was quite normal but for others it wasn’t.
This year I missed out on lots of things but I was able to keep doing my Lifeskills programmes even during the lock down. I was able to enjoy respite with friends and go on outings with my carers.
I didn’t have a great year with my health but I have so far avoided COVID so for that I am happy. I am also stable for now.
I have not been able to go to my CHARGE conference this year but we did have an online catch up that was good fun.
COVID changed lots of things but it made people change the way they do things. Some of these changes were for the better but some changes made things harder. I had trouble with telehealth with my hearing and my Drs had to do face to face so this was hard in the beginning. My NDIS meeting was done via video conference which didn’t work. When technology doesn’t work it can be hard to do things.
Even though I couldn’t do many things I was at least able to do. Next year will hopefully be much better for everyone because I always believe everyone will have good days and bad days.
