This 6 ½ years (July 2011 – February 2018) in shared supported
accommodation, has had a significant impact on the deterioration of my
disability. This attains to using the phrase ‘on a dunghill’ as a
description of my life in a shared supported facility. This term of
expression gives readers an idea of the ugly reality; of the helplessness,
immobility, failure to speak and see; and of course the power of irritation
towards the delivery of life circumstances pertaining to the disability
sector. This bureaucratic mess is subsequent to a lack of true empathy,
which may conflict with any budget bottom line, thus enforcing the creation
of social dilemmas which then draws attention away from the original
problem. This is something that can also be performed by non-government
authorities, as is seen in my own circumstance.
My new book 6 and a ½ Years on a Dunghill: Life in Specialist Disability
Accommodation will be released soon.
