Hi my name is Nicola, I have been disabled from birth, I have mental illness too quite badly. I have no carer, i live alone. Ever since the coronavirus outbreak I've had no offer of assistance from anybody, no food delivery, not even an offer of help. I wont go out on my own, I find it difficult. I feel so isolated and nowhere to turn.
