Here Edward who lives at Oakleigh in Dawlish tells us all about how he has overcome a real personal challenge.
Edward said: “For a number of years I have really struggled with an obsession over labels. This could be labels in clothing, on house hold appliances, diaries, books, price stickers or even bins and hazardous stickers. This influenced my life so much, that I was having labels taken out of clothing, appliances, and at times I couldn’t enter workshops or walk past bins that had labels on.”
“However, in the last two months all that has started to change! Now I am keeping labels on all my clothes and all of my new appliances and products. This has not been easy and the challenge is something I deal with every day, but I am so proud of myself and so are my staff team. I can now work in areas that have labels, I can buy clothes I want and I am feeling better each day!”
