    You can self-refer for an OT by looking up your local council's website, finding Adult Social Care and contacting them. The only problem is they tend to have long waiting lists. If you need more immediate help there are lots of disability stores online and some basic items are not very expensive.

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Thank you. I will have a look and see what I can find. I find it difficult to get an appointment with my GP.

    Good luck! You don't need a GP for this.
