The council rang my mother up today. They left a message about my vulnerability on her answer phone. I’m not interested in any potential support or advice from the county council. They ruined my life with their so called support previously. I’ve had enough of ‘do gooders’ insisting that they’re there to help when they haven’t got the slightest clue what living my life is like. I’m more open minded than most those that work on behalf of the authorities. I’m certainly not stupid. It’s bloody insulting being treated like a child! I’m nearly 33. I understand life and people after a lot of awful experiences. Experiences that I wouldn’t have endured if it wasn’t for their actions and labels. I’m not ungrateful but my life would have been much better if I’d never been labelled autistic and identified as different. So please back off. I can deal with my life independently. I don’t need extra stress on top from so called support sources. The council don’t support those with mental illness… they merely only see risk. Then we are punished for who we are for the rest of our lives. I want things in life and I can’t have them under the councils responsibility as a vulnerable adult due to risk assessments always putting autistic people or the mentally ill as a high risk. That happens due to people in authority not understanding these types of conditions.
