Been trying to find the full report on the Oxfordshire Mums case but seems Ombudsman site is reorganizing :( :( :angry: The reference number is 17 018 339 should anyone else have more luck or could try again in few days All I can see so far is the summary which mentions "an exceptional circumstances...
Oh, and if she moves away and it doesn't work out be careful that she doesn't then try to move back and in with you!!!

Am sure you have no idea how much you have grown thorough this journey
Conor It is a sad situation, but it is not of your making. Keep telling him to get help. Keep repeating the Smaritians number 116 123 to him. One day he will call it. You have to stay strong for you. Its so sad so many with mental health problems try putting it all on those around them. It's often h...

It's common, but not fair, that he tries to put blame or guilt on you. Wear the forums invisible Teflon coat a...
