Hi everyone - I haven't been on here for AGES, for one reason & another, but this is such an interesting thread. I became a carer about 10 years ago (for daughter with special needs) and work just a few hours a week now. She is now in her 20's and would love a job but nothing as yet. Shaw Trust, Job...
I don't know about Shopmobility George - will look into that, thanks. http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_smile.gif All the council sites in my area DO charge - where we went yesterday there was a sign which read "Please note Blue Badge holders are NOT exempt" but it was brill because we parked imme...
My Mum has just received her first ever Blue Badge. We applied & received it within a week - is this a record? I am SO impressed. http://dev.carersuk.org/j3/images/icon_biggrin.gif It will make life so much easier when I take her out. She's 84, has had bowel cancer twice and gets tired and sometimes...
Really sorry to read this .... I feel for you! I had my car broken into once and handbag & contents stolen but this is way worse and must be SO distressing. Hope you M-I-L is OK. now Gem.
Had a phone call to say that all the work can be done and Mum won't have to contribute anything. So that's a relief! It won't be done for some time though and definitely not before her op. so now we have another lady coming out soon to see what can be done in the interim. I have to say a BIG thank y...
<t>Thanks SO much Annie. I've been out shopping (only groceries) and DD was OK today. Usually go to Mum's today or take her out but I felt so stressed I just rang her instead. <br/> <br/> I have calmed down a bit & realise that I've done my best - so if the council lady comes and says Mum has to...
Jean - I'm not kidding - if I was near you I'd come and give you a BIG hug right now!!

Stress and worry about the future and sulking and arguing is bad enough on a daily basis but you have to be a SAINT to do all that some of you do!!

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...
