    So glad you managed to get yourself a support worker. I have one myself and they make the world of difference. Mine takes me shops, out for walks, sorts my bills out and does litterally anything I ask them too. They are a blessing to have.

    I'm pleased that you are finally getting the support you need put in place, support in the UK seems to be a postcode lottery where some areas are better than others and have better funding in place. Enjoy your dance lessons and take care of yourself.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.

    Oh that's excellent news @cupcake88 I'm really happy for you and your dog of course. ;) 
    Will your dog be joining in with the dance lessons?
