Raising awareness on Paige’s epilepsy
Invited Paige round to have Sunday dinner with my mum & brother (even though my mum ended up burning first batch of rice ) and we just chatted about what’s been going and how she’s been also talked realistically how the real test of staying clean will come when she’s no longer on meth (to most addicts this stuff is harder to come off then heroin & crack itself) but as always she knows it’s one step at a time.
After tea we’ve ended up walking to primark after some harry bloody potter flip flops where I noticed she was having little jerks on the way down & once inside Paige has gone into a full blown epileptic fit grabbed my arm and locked up heading towards the floor where she was out cold but her body having huge fits and choking on her saliva & tried to put her in the recovery position because there was no chance of putting my fingers in as the sound of her teeth grinding was like bone being broken in half from a dogs bite on a bone, staff at primark was excellent also checking if I needed a first aider and a staff member named Georgia sat down on the floor & chatted while Paige came round making sure she was ok and helped her to the first aid room but when inside Paige still wasn’t herself and ended up needing a new pair of bottoms & underwear due to an accident while still not 100% herself (which management sorted ASAP) and as we walked to the bus stop Paige asked me to save her £5 which she got earlier from someone buying a badge & if that’s not proof enough she’s on the right track from her addiction with heroin I don’t know what is.
From just under 10-11 weeks Paige has beaten the streets, controlled her addiction, put plans in motion to get her son back and even asked staff at primark if there was any jobs going, I no longer have to be out on the streets raising awareness I need to just carry on the work I’m doing right now.
