Mental health is through the floor, and apparently, no one cares! Where are the lessons that have been learnt over the years by all the abuses that have taken place under official care? This will continue until oversights are in place to prevent people like myself from slipping through the net. Please, join my campaign for mental health rights. Right to your own MP, local politician or news media, and ask them what they are doing to support disabled rights?

hello and welcome back to episode 189 of my diary. I’m bill gibbons

I couldn’t sleep last night I actually only had two hours and I’ve so far only had two hours sleep today

all of it is due to the anxiety caused by the housing ombudsman and Waltham Forest council

I’ve been waiting for a call back from Waltham Forest council now for; June, July, August, September, nearly four months, from their rent section, no explanation as to why no one’s calling me back

three months for a repair the housing ombudsman I’ve been waiting for weeks and that was an escalation of a call that they didn’t have for three weeks so seven weeks in total

I called the housing ombudsman this morning

and this is part of the problem. I’m refusing to chase people because I’ve had enough of it. if people say they’re going to call me back I don’t see why I should call them, especially when I’ve got it recorded on my phone thank you very much

I spoke to someone, really frustrated I was when I was speaking to this woman, and I said how long does it normally take for you to call people back? between two and five days, well it’s been almost a month now. Oh, she said, well I can try and put you through to someone. I said, no I’m expecting a call back, I’m not calling in to get put through to someone. I need one of your people senior managers to call me back because I’ve put several complaints in about the service in this time and none of them responded to. I put a complaint into the local government ombudsman and the housing ombudsman chief executives several weeks ago within two days the local government ombudsman’s chief executive assistant called me back

and he was very sympathetic I’ve had nothing from the chief executive of the housing ombudsman I will be emailing them again in a moment

but like I explained to the housing ombudsman woman this morning. my internet’s been so bad I’ve stopped checking my emails because it takes too long to download them all and I can’t guarantee that things will be working. so I don’t use the internet very rarely do I use internet this upload itself could take anywhere between 10 minutes and three or four hours depending on what speed I get thank you Vodafone

so another complaint against the ombudsman I will be copying in the housing and culture minister the new one I can’t remember his name or her name I think it’s a fella

my level of anxiety is through the roof. I look all calm and coherent to people on YouTube and social media but I’m not I’m worried and concerned every single moment of every single day as to why people are ignoring me, and yes I call it ignoring because if people are aware and I had it confirmed this morning that the housing ombudsman has got a record this time of a call back request I made on the 27th of august I think she said it was so a month

if people are aware there’s a call back then I shouldn’t have to chase them and I shouldn’t have to call them

and if they’re aware of it and they’re not doing it that’s called ignoring

I’m not after compensation I want people to do what they are supposed to do

it’s just not good enough I’m sorry it is not good enough to treat disabled people the way I’m being treated

anyway I’ve been playing about. I nearly broke my website again yesterday, I’ve been playing about with logins and membership and things like that and I finally changed to the format I wanted in the first place, but there was so little content on the website it looked weird now there’s an awful lot of content because I spent a long time transferring all my stuff across from my old YouTube channel to the new one and that’s all up on the website so I’m hoping to get more attention via that but we’ll see we’ll see how it all goes what else is happening

no not really apart from me not getting any sleep and constantly having arguments with amazon I had a phone amazon last week because another delivery got left downstairs and I got refunded for that but I must admit since my second phone call to amazon last week then

I’ve had all delivery so far to my door, I’ve got another big delivery tonight, my subscription; coffee, cat food, cat litter that sort of stuff. it’s on subscription because I get it cheaper that way and the cats need their food so I’ve got decent cat food coming once a month so all I’ve got to do is top it up occasionally with some variety. they seem to be happy and healthy on it. so and I’ve got some coffee coming for me not that I’m really short coffee but I might skip next month’s round because i’ll have nowhere to put it

what else is happening? I can’t believe I’m talking, I’ve got tabs and merlin behind me and caspie over here and he’s not coming up on the table normally he is. oh yes I got a call from Chris yesterday or day before yesterday I think it was, my mental health caseworker. he’s invited me to a zoom meeting next Wednesday I hope it’s next Wednesday anyway because it’s Thursday today now yeah it must be next Wednesday

to have a zoom meeting about music. hey ,I do this for fun so zoom means not a problem. the only problem I’ve got is a leaking tap, £1500 that Waltham Forest Council currently owes me, and that goes up by a couple of hundred every month including £350 or something compensation

I’ve still got my bed in the living room because Waltham Forest Council refuse to help anyone without a physical disability that’s what they got on their literature physical disability only so people with a mental disability get no support from Waltham forest it’s in black and white

I’ve got to say this is what I don’t want to carry on complaining but I’m going to have to write another email to complain about the lack of people dealing with my complaints about the complaint this is the false escalation for the as an ombudsman now

I think their customer services are pooling the housing and cultural I’ve called the housing and cultural minister to look a chase on my complaint from several weeks ago

and the attitude of the person that took the call I need to put a complaint in about I’ve got a letter here from Waltham Forest council

i’ll just show you what it looks like

yeah, not even their headed note paper. it’s like a made-up photocopy one it’s about

oh a financial assessment for a care package or something it’s really badly written it tells me mostly what I already know and it ends you know it tells me the information I’ve already given and it says your quote unquote ability to pay ability to pay what there’s no clarification there’s no phone or contact information for this officer so I’m gonna have to scan that in and put a complaint in against that as well

so that’s three complaints I need to put in tonight alone from one phone call

see what I mean everyone is incompetent I don’t know why I’m looking at the light it’s dazzling in the eyes I’ve got a big light right there

anyway hopefully the sound is okay the picture seems better might be a bit grainier than normal but I think it’s better because I’ve now got the spotlight over there pointed away from me and the one over here is pointed away from me as well so I’m not getting any backlighting and the only front lighting I’m getting is from my light here. anyway thank you for watching please like share comment and subscribe and I will love you and leave you all comments are welcome as long as I’m not rude or abusive

please also look out for my other playlists on this channel relating to religion mental health scuttlebutt is the new one about basically editorial that’s all Scuttlebutt is. I’ve got a few more videos in the pipeline and I’ve got my big production to do which I might start tomorrow

so that’s about how I make videos I’ve already done a temporary screen test for it so with any luck in two or three hours tomorrow I should be able to knock the eight episodes up it should all be done as one really but it needs breaking up so i’ll be doing that tomorrow and with any luck i’ll be getting some coffee soon and I can have a decent shot of coffee hopefully tonight i’ll get some sleep but i’ll doubt it somewhere I’ve tried staying awake all day even though I only have two hours sleep I think I’ve had like a half hour nap earlier today but anyway thank you for watching
