When you are not there, who else helps? I'm 19. I'm about to start uni doing a law degree. I don't need a councillor my head deals with it all just fine. My sisters look after her when I'm not available Matt - everyone can benefit from counselling. Being highly intellectual in some specific area do...
I can't give a complete solution to a situation like this but I can suggest a few points that may help. The first point is something I would stress. Many people at work dislike being closely scrutinised, other than by a manager or trainer or someone having reasonable cause to observe them closely. M...
Yes, threats are of little use, and last warnings must be precisely that. It is necessary to make it clear exactly where boundaries lie - which you have done - good luck.

Make sure brother-in-law does not leave the key lying around when mother-in-law does get access!
Denis, I think your situation exemplifies how tricky it is on forums to give any 'useful suggestions/advice/response' etc etc because we only get 'bits and pieces' from those posting in, and it can take a while for a bigger picture (but never the whole picture of course, by definition!) to emerge. ...
I had two knee replacements a few years ago, after a car accident, and I'm dismayed to hear about your wife having had such a negative experience. I know at least three people who had either a hip or knee that was never right, when they saw a different specialist the problem was identified, they ha...
Hi Denis, sounds like you are Piggy in the Middle!! What exactly is wrong with your wife? She had both knee replacements a few years ago, but the operation was less successful than we hoped for. She uses sticks to get around or a wheelchair for longer distances. She does what she can to help with h...
Thanks, Jenny, for your thoughts. They make a lot of sense. I think you have sussed this - an in-law issue - my wife would not not get on with my sister even if she were not disabled. Her disability just adds another dimension and intensifies the problem. My wife has lost a lot of control over her l...
My wife has a disability and is not very mobile. I am coping with the day-to-day problems that this causes but there is a problem with my wife's relationship with my side of the family. She regards all of them with various degrees of suspicion, even though one couple was extremely supportive when I ...
Some years ago we received a letter from the company that handles our sewerage, stating that we were getting a rebate. We had been charged at the full rate, but the company had discovered that the houses in our road were built with soakaways for surface water. The letter bore a complicated set of ca...
. . . P.S. As a lawyer I generally find Union Reps to be fairly useless, sadly. I respect Mal's experience and professionalism, but I take this as a personal view. Twice in my career I had the misfortune to be in employment that was fine for a good while but ended with me being "eased out" and with...
