    Hi @uniquejourney, and a warm welcome to the community! It's great to have you here.

    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling at the moment. Is there somebody at the facility you could talk to about your needs?

    i am trying to get my needs across. i also have a mental health advocate and my parents.
    they ended up having to get the on call doctor last night because of how bad i was so they have now given me some PRN pain medication, which i have been on before and doesn't do much but hopefully will do something. 
    i just yeah hopefully stuff will happen but everything happens soooooooooo sloooowly here. 
    thank you for the wellcome @Pippa_Scope
    i think they aren't used to someone with as many physical/ multiple very different issues and difficulties.

    I'm glad to hear that things moved forward @uniquejourney, and it's a really valid point you raise there about looking after both physical and mental health needs. We have some community members who also manage complex needs, so do get involved and let us know if we can be of any further assistance!
