I am pleased for you being able to stay in touch with your Mum and also having creative photography sessions online. Your needs aren’t all being met everywhere right now but I imagine those that are, like contact with your Mum and being able to have a creative outlet, must be high on your priority list, allowing gratitude and other good feelings.I avoid the news as well. its like self harm.
The covid 19 changes has had a huge effect on my life as all my day services and routines have been physically stopped,including going to the local shop once a day for a can of drink. relieing On carers they have refused to take me out to the shops,only allowing two shop visits a week,it’s triggered a lot of meltdowns and made my depression worse.
One of my day services,a UK organisation called Venture Arts, which is an art studio for people with LD (a lot of us are autistic as well) is giving me zoom sessions with my photography tutor,they actually sent me an iPad on loan so I coud use it for the zoom camera and can use my iPad for my Proloquo2go as otherwise the sessions woud have been impossible.
my mum was diagnosed with several quite bad cancers around the same time the UK lockdown had just started so the extra iPad means I can communicate with her to.
i am hoping To do voluntary work at a special primary school for kids with all levels of autism when all this is over but I’m not sure how that will work out with being Non verbal and in a (manual) wheel chair.
