Press the Badger
I had a ‘ticcing fit’ in the night and reached for my emergency buzzer. I use a wireless doorbell to alert my support worker when I need help. I found something the right shape and size and tried frantically to make it buzz – but with no luck. I realised then that my thumb had been pressing the sharp snout of a wooden badger. Ten minutes (and a lot of uncontrollable wriggling) later I found the alarm and called for help.
