Welcome to the boards Alex. I'm sorry that you're struggling at the moment, but glad that you're seeking help. It does sound like you're doing a great job in a very difficult and stressful situation. We tend to be our own worst critics, so I would imagine that your friends' and family's views on you...
As the leave is escorted, could you discuss with the staff any restrictions they may be able to place on his financial activities when on leave?

The previous suggestions by other members also sound good.

Hope things work out for you, as this sounds really stressful!
Hi Stephanie, I spoke to one of the SEN teachers at my school, and she thought that having a separate room didn't even need a formal access arrangement assessment in order to be put in place, so I can't see why this hasn't been sorted out for your son as it sounds like it's very easy to do.

If you do come across any further problems getting school on board, if you say a little bit more about what the school are not doing, I may be able to help. I'm a teacher so have a ...
Thanks so much for your responses. Kari, I'm sorry that you also have to deal with the joys of the crisis team and I hope that the GP was able to offer something more productive today! Jenny, strangely enough I'd never thought of visiting forums for dissociation as a carer, but that's a brilliant id...
Hi there, I'm new to the forums, so hope I am posting in the right place. I work full time as a teacher and also care for my fiancée who is often not in control of her actions due to dissociation, and in this state she engages in various life-endangering behaviours. She is more unsafe than normal at...
Welcome!

You aren't being mean at all. Have you sought help for the PND? You are handling both your own poor mental health and his (and looking after a baby!), so really ought to be getting some support for yourself.
