I managed to get some more of my tutor marked assignment done today. I slept in late but did enough to make sure that I finish it by the deadline. I just have to go over the answers and type my reference list. That doesn’t take as much effort as the parts I have already finished. I have struggled due to tiredness over the last few days. I’m just not sleeping much at night at the moment. I wish that I could just sleep properly for hours and actually wake up feeling like I’ve been asleep. I keep having dreams every time I fall asleep which doesn’t help me get proper sleep. I can’t even remember half of them. I forget them if I do not write them down straight away after I wake up. Some of them are verging on nightmares which results in me waking up because I was scared. I think that I just have an overactive mind. It’s an awful vicious cycle that makes me depressed.
I’ve already voted via post for the general election. I cleared out my post box earlier. There was a pile of leaflets advertising those that were standing for the local elections. I’m not saying which way I voted but the only party that has even considered disabled people are Labour. I don’t want to influence others but I would like to stress that voting for the Conservatives is not a good idea if you’re part of the disabled community. I don’t think that Brexit is the main issue for those of us that are disabled. We need to think about the wider picture. Brexit has prevented other issues from being addressed for too long already. It is still an important issue but we all have to look at the whole picture before casting a vote. Otherwise the wrong outcome is going to happen because everyone is focused solely on Brexit. Those of us that are disabled have to think of our futures aside from whatever happens with Brexit. We haven’t even been considered by any other party manifestos other than the Labour party. I’m not being biased because I haven’t necessarily voted for that party. I will just assure everyone that I didn’t vote Tory. I’m just making a comment on the things that I have read recently. I honestly don’t know who is better as prime minister but things definitely need to change. There is a lot of criticism for Jeremy Corbyn. However, I feel that we will only get change for those of us that have disabilities if he becomes prime minister.
