Autism passport: done!!

After, I think, 2 months of constant effort…the autism passport is finally done. Phew.

Now I have another weapon to fight shitty drs & handle medical appts!Excuse me whilst I hide in a dark room for the next week… 😂

This is a local NHS scheme, & the passport actually instructs drs during any hospital visit that they must print out, read, & gang the passport on my bed. Any staff interacting with me are supposed to read it. This should hopefully be an awesome tool at stopping medical staff being dickheads, & limiting trauma.

Autism passport aggro

If I had the energy, I’d be banging my head against the wall rn 😂

So there’s a really cool local NHS scheme where autistic patients get a passport to fill in. This gets logged on your file, you get a copy too, & at hospital appts or visits, staff are asked to print the passport out, read it, & hang it on end of your bed. The passport gives staff crucial information about how your autism effects you (things you like, things you don’t like, sensory issues), & also has blocks to tell them about other health issues you have too.

For me, this will be an extremely helpful safety net, as at every hospital visit I’ve had to deal with abusive or bullying doctors.

Needless to say I want this tool asap, but unfortunately because it’s produced by the NHS & I guess a new scheme, it’s faulty af. I’ve tried filling this beast in eight times now, only for it to fuck up each and every one of them 😂

Text disappearing, icons disappearing, images disappearing, text changing size, images & text boxes overlapping each other. Like, just a ridiculous number of technical issues.

I thought I’d finally got it working today. But nope, nope, so much nope 😂

The sent file looked great. We re-downloaded it to check it was okay, & this is what we got instead!

Uuuugh.

If it worked it would be FANTASTIC. But 🙄

We’ve asked the guy for help for the third time, hopefully he’ll respond & we can get it sorted… 😅

I wasn’t out done asap as when I go see the GP about my hypermobile joints & rheumatoid arthritis, I wasn’t to hand it over to them. It’s been a loooong process 😂
