I frist heard about this voluntary work placement when I decided to get back into voluntary work through the Bideford voluntary centre. I found it hard at frist to try to be part of a team again as although put a mask of a exovert really deep down shy and sensitive. I got to know and respect the fellow volunteers and enjoyed diong the gardening. Sometimes the politics of the place would rear its ugly head so i just sat on the fence to stay out of this situation. I had to leave due due to moving to Holsworthy for family reasons. I was able to get the chance of doing a second stint due to fellow volunteer moving to Holsworthy. I have to say in my own opinion that the garden and surrounding areas were in a terrible state of disarray and through my and over voluntary worker was able to ger back to a very good standard. The journey to and from place to home was a long trek so to past time got chatting to volunteer giving life about usual every day stuff and at time i thought i was founded a friendship. When the place frist got its new young vulnerable adult i was considered not able to be own to work with him due to my own disabled which in some eyes made me a vulnerable adult as well which did upset me at time,this changed and i got on well with said adult who seemed to blossom in a lot of ways,then hear comes the punch it all changed due a lack of information and my wife getting worse. The lack of information kead to my wife wandering why i was there a problem with me being picked up which in turn lead to a very shittty nasty response from the voluntary worker who give me a lift a rant about why did wife ring up ,something about Facebook, children being picked up late from school, and i treatment of them as at my beck and call then my wife got very ill which when i read message i got very pissed off and yes i did put comments on a site on Facebook which was wrong but then i was accused of either picking on them or having a problem which i did not reply to as i thought mistakenly that people knew i was not that kind of person so i decided to leave to not make tge situation get worse or ruin my reputation, was 10 years a care worker in mental health and special needs and 10 years voluntary work on different projects and never had any complaints. Don't get the wrong impression i really enjoyed my time at this place but when things start to make you uneasy its time to go.

One of my conditions is nystagmus this is where my eyes continually move in lots of different directions. So some times when I am talking to people they think that I am not looking at them when I am talking to them because my eyes were looking elsewhere. I have to tilt my head to the left hand side as it reduces my eyes wobbling.
My other condition is astigmatism this is where my eyes are shaped differently. Most people's eyes are shaped like footballs and my are shaped like rugby balls. This makes my vision fuzzy.
I wear glasses to help with the fuzziness.
These conditions mean that I have got reduced vision as my vision is 6/36 this means that what most people can see at 36 meters I can only see at 6metres or less.
And foe the people that say I can't work in a kitchen well you are very wrong as I do it as voluntary work in a kitchen and I really enjoy this. I am going to follow my dream and get a paid job in waitressing or in a kitchen. Z I hope that people will understand a bit more about my eye conditions. Xx Also if I don't say hi or wave to you in the street it is not because I am being rude and just ignoring you it is because I don't see you. I also can't see faces properly so I may say who are you please not because I am being rude it is because I don't recognise you
A lot of people think that I make up not being able to see but I really can't see very well. I hope that this will help people to understand my conditions if you want to know something please ask and I will do my best to answer you. Xx
If you know if anyone with these conditions please let me know as I would like to share our experiences xx
Sorry if I it is a long post and a lot to read but I hope you will read It and share it for me.
Thank you x
