Back in 2014 my friend did a search on the internet to help me find a place to go. We found People First Merseyside coffee mornings in Liverpool, so we went along to see what it was like. I was nervous because we did not know anyone and I find it difficult to make friends. Most of the people where nice so we went back to the next one and decided to join. The first thing we did was a sponsored walk on the Wirral way. All the group got sponsors I had done nothing like that before, I had to ask people to sponsor me for money. We travelled over to the Wirral and did our walk I surprised myself and the group because I completed the walk. I did live in a flat for 16 years but have just moved into supported living accommodation because I need help to move about. It’s nice and I am losing weight, I have lost over 3 stone to date. I’ve got one sister in Liverpool and lots of friends who help me.

I enjoy watching the TV but listen to music every night my favourite ins Elvis. I make cards and I would call myself a crafter. I have a console and play a game called brain trainer its very good. I would like to be a famous artist; I’m abstract, I just put the colour to paper and see where it takes me. Friends say my paintings are nice. I also paint glass jars and often use felt tip pens to colour with.
