Hi Charm Sadly I've had experience of similar with a relative. I know there are more out there and it is still happening, mainly because the lack of support and/or other accomodation. I assume you know of, and are probably party to the 7 days of action campaign and of Mark Neary and his blogs? I ca...
Charm, that sounds a very negative experience. I've made suggestions based on my own experience. What positive suggestions would you make based on your own experience, when doing nothing simply isn't an option because you are totally exhausted? What can I say Bowlingbun?

I agree, your son is very fortunate to have you. Love and devotion can give so much strength. I do hope you manage time for yourself. Hiya Pet6...

Yes, you can't take away hope, nor should you. Your son is a fortunate young man to have you fighting his corner so fiercely - and lovely that your new young friend can benefit too. 17 is a tricky age to negotiate around. Everything can get on top of you very, very quickly. Kind regards, Jenny Hiya...
