    Support organisation, parents, public trustee, guardian, person at another agency all going about the involvement with me this way. Has finished with one of them well the first one, lessened a lot with the second and also finished with communication with the third, but yeah with the first and last couple- it is still proving difficult, tricky. If that makes sense, anyway I am 23 years old and living alone- just want some peace, peace of mind and just freedom from harassment from these people. Yep

    Hi StevoP,

    We all need to feel respected, treated as we deserve, acknowledged and our issues validated and understood.

    If you do require assistance from these people and organisations and you decline their help due to how you feel you are being treated, do you have other people who can step in to help and assist you?

    Is it possible for you to communicate to these people how you feel you are being treated? Can you offer them suggestions on how you would like to be treated and assisted?

    Do you need help or can you care for yourself totally independently?

    Dools
