Email to my truly outstanding and dedicated NDIS Support Coordinator:
Can you please tell me what is happening tomorrow in terms of rosters and carer S.2 et cetera?
Am back home resting and have made my apologies to James the physio who just came round when Ambo Dave and yet another bunch of amazingly helpful neighbours had escorted me back down the drive.
I do feel for you, having me as a client ..
I got spooked when i woke up and carer S.1 had gone.
Checked my email (phone still not working) and nothing from you or J. in Rosters, then sort of panicked and went to see if i could get a massage, fix my bloody phone, get some decent shorts … or just something to find relief or a even just a bit of a break from the current unbearable pressure .. something, somewhere, someone..
Got caught out when i couldn’t get water fast enough, so barely made it past local caf Sal & Co. Don’t think the lovely staff saw me in dire straits this time, although to be perfectly frank, at this stage what does it matter? Not a jot, not one iota.
Then tried a quick dash up the slope to the divine Wamberal beach thinking i might yet salvage something from this escapade that was fast starting to look a bit ropey.
Thought ‘If only i could shed some of these insanely cumbersome and restrictive clothes and walk back along the beach.. stupid bloody tracksuit bottoms!’
Amazingly fit and strong older surf bloke Michael (dead ringer for Spike Milligan) and really nice bloke Craig carried/helped me down the slope – me at this stage, of course again very much sadder and wiser, with better safe than sorry of course being my newfangled mundane mantra.
Ambo Dave joined the gang – “Ah yes, i know Richard … how are you buddy??” – when Michael put me in his car and drove me home where they both frogmarched me gently back down the drive to the Wolf’s Lair.
My God what an amazing place to live..
On the plus side, Ambo Dave was satisfied, even impressed in the end, meaning i think i narrowly avoided yet another trip to hospital LOL.
That reminds me, dear R. I received a $500 bill the other day for my last ambulance ride, probably with Dave ..
Resting now …
