I live at home with my parents, 2 sisters and my brother (who also has disabilities) plus family pets of dogs & cats. I work very well with routine although I can have anxiety with changes to my usual routine. We moved from Uckfield to Halland and during this time I struggled to adapt. I am much more familiar with my home now and much more settled.
I can display traits of Autism but have not received a formal diagnosis. I require a high level of support and supervision throughout the day.
I am a happy and gentle person but do tend to Shriek if I feel uncomfortable or become anxious.
My usual interests are in music and watching football have decreased, however this is something for the PA to stimulate and increase in time.
