I just don’t have the confidence. I will have to go with my staff which makes it very expensive to travel as I have to pay for them plus there wages with equals to £2000 a week just for their wages alone.
I have a friend I go on holiday with but because of his autism he can’t plan ahead and I like to plan holidays ahead of time and have them booked. This frustrates me. I told him I will pay for his travel expenses if he accompanies me on holiday as this still works out cheaper then travelling with my staff as me and friend can share a room.
I feel like I’ve wasted 10 years off my life getting sectioned. I want to live. In 10 years I’ve only been to Greece, Italy, Germany, Holland, Switzerland. And Wales and Scotland but these are in the UK where I live so these don’t count. I feel like I could of accomplished more.
Also I can’t go on holiday on my own. I get maximum benefits and going abroad on my own would make me seem too able. My CPN said he totally supports me going abroad on my own and I won’t have a problem with the benefit people as I have a genuine and serious disability.
