Thanks for your relies. It helps just knowing someone is listening. http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_smile.gif I have spoken to the person at local council and she needs to see copies of last 2 bank statements so am meeting her at Mum's in a few days. As I understand from her if the council agree...
I should have said that too - "It IS a very good point"!! http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_smile.gif It really needs looking at I think. My DD has no physical problems but I can honestly say that if I did not have my hubby I would have often chucked in the towel - I take my hat off to you people ...
Hello Redfang - I probably won't make a lot of sense because my mind is all over the place right now http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_rolleyes.gif but I just wanted you to know someone had read your thread! My hubby often does work at a house where a young man (who is severely autistic) lives and...
Thank you so much Gavin - I will ring that number. I live several miles from my Mum and all paperwork is at her house at the mo. Annie - thank you also.

I'm just wondering whether you should maybe edit some of your personal details from your postings. For security reasons. Image
Hi - haven't been on for a while but I wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction please. We have a daughter with learning difficulties (in her twenties) who lives at home. She gets her DLA and Incapacity Benefit but would like a little job really and lately keeps on about getting her ...
<t>Wasn't this a terribly sad headline today? I felt physically sick. This poor Mum and her disabled teenage daughter found dead in their burnt out car in Leics. <br/> <br/> The news channels are saying that it appears she murdered her daughter and killed herself because of the dreadful abuse and to...
Thank you all for your kind words. Still feeling pretty c**p but will come back when I'm feeling more like it. Thanks for just being there xxxxxxxxx
Has anybody felt so rotten that they just want to run away and hide? I am a carer for my daughter (in her twenties) learning difficulties & very moody and hard to please. Also forever saying she doesn't like me and doesn't want to do anything much with me but then accuses me of having no interest in...
