“Care which helped me walk again”
I was just thirteen years old when I started my first job working in a local butcher’s and that’s where I stayed until I was 21.
I then went to work on the rigs offshore where I met my partner. We got married and were together for four years. Unfortunately, we divorced, it was then that I became very ill.
Looking back, I think I was ill before the marriage but never recognised it. I was eventually taken into hospital for six months, where they found out that I had a gastro ulcer in my stomach. This ulcer affected all of my organs, which left me unable to walk and I was wheelchair bound for 19 years.
Then my life changed. Someone from Orwell came to visit me, they told me that If I wanted to come and live at Levington Court that they would give me all the care I needed and of course I said yes. I moved into Levington Court in 2010, where I have now lived for 9 years. I was offered Physio which has helped my muscles and got me walking again! I am now out of a wheelchair and can do a lot more for myself.
The staff have been so kind and helpful over the years and I am happy to be back to my old self again. I am so proud when I look at how far I have come.
A huge thank you to all the staff at Orwell for helping me.
