I have a difficult time talking for myself. When I have to talk to drs, the manager of my building, etc I don't express myself well. I have no family support I'm alone to fend for myself. Sometimes my mind goes blank and I can't think. I have a difficult time getting motivated to do my laundry, and shopping for food. My question is do you think I need an advocate? I have never had one I dislike social workers so what do you think? What does an advocate do? Are they pushy? Thanks for all advice.
Hey,

They’re more called ‘ keyworkers’ and mine is really lovely. It’s really important you have a good relationship with them to begin with. They can help you with a lot. Worth looking into
