    Hopefully, with the OT's findings, there will be practical recommendations and improvements @gerrard which will, hopefully, help to make living in the house easier.

    In the meantime, how are you coping? It sounds difficult for you that you are living upstairs 24 hours a day.

    If there's anything we can do to help, even if that's just listening, please don't hesitate to let us know  :)

    Hi gerrard I think it's a long and winding road you just have to keep chasing them. I am due for another assessment to see if I have a learning difficulty or autism as well as ongoing support for my mental health suggested by the occupational therapist. Good luck with it all.
