With current political news on benefits and social care funding cuts, my recent trip and more fundamental parts of my life would be compromised. I am now turning my thoughts to halting such political nightmares for disabled people and ensuring everyone can live a full, independent and self-directed life, as I have done up until now. Without the government foundations underpinning my care, life would be very different for me and many others. Let's hope the recent announcements are questioned and stopped. More to come!
