  1. Hey LOH, thank you for your comment The hospital won't pay for the crutches unless I have a police report/crime number or something as the hospitals are losing a lot of money because people don't return them apparently. But thankfully my T has managed to get them paid for by the department she works for. I didn't report it to the police as I have an issue with them from when I was younger. They've failed me before, I don't trust them and the police are a massive trigger for me. Also the people that did this to me are well known in our area and you learn to just keep quiet, if I had reported them they would have known and this would have caused further issues for me. Today I am feeling a bit better, I haven't been out for a week but tomorrow a friend is going to go to the shop with me. So maybe I have taken a small step forward... Anyway thank you again for you reply, I appreciate it so much Hope you are well Brooklyn
  2. Ok so I haven't ever written a blog before but I guess I'm writing it here to vent and because I don't expect a response, and people aren't really going to want to read about it. But on wednesday I was walking home and I was cornered by a gang that live near me. They tried to steal from me, but I have little money to spend on myself and therefore little of worth for them to steal. The one thing they did take from me was my crutches. And considering I have a broken ankle and still had a long walk home on ice this made it difficult. I was beaten by about 8 people, kicked, punched, spat on. I also now have to pay for new crutches as the hospital don't take theft as a good enough reason to have lost them. Not entirely sure what qualifies as a good enough reason if being beaten by 8 people doesn't count. Maybe I should enquire.... But I'm bruised and battered. I told myself I'm ok but I'm not. Its triggered a massive feeling of vulnerability. I don't feel safe in my home anymore. I'm putting things up against the doors and windows in the hope that it'll stop anyone getting in. Feel like I've taken several steps backwards :(
