That's reassuring that they can do things like that. The Manchester Council website does have some info , but you don't know what to expect in reality. I just wonder - to what extent is it usually means tested? It's just my husband is retired on ill health grounds (only 32 yo :( ) so we got given a ...
I have called up today for a Carers assessment. I have never had one before, but I feel it's time. I am not sure what to expect really. They said my referral is being sent over to the a primary assessment unit and I should hear about getting an appointment in 21 days. Does anyone know how long it ta...
He went into A&E two days ago (on his birthday!!) because he was howling and writhing in agony and had to call an ambulance . He got given oral morphine and IV paracetamol which took thee edge off his joints pains. He saw a rheumatologist who arranged for him to take home some oral morphine and go b...
Thank you so much you guys. Been in and out of hospital this week. He is really struggling. Getting great care though. Just he is so rare that it's hard for them to help. I've been emailing with Samaritans (can't really call because he would hear and worry) which has helped a bit. Just a bit low and...
How frustrating! Urgh I'm angry for you! Hope it gets sorted in the end!
So happy the PIP got sorted for you! It's a stressful thing to have to do, but so glad you got pleasant people helping you :D

I just hope the care plan gets sorted too!

I guess I just worry when I feel even a bit down because I can deteriorate quickly (I haven't for a long while, but it is still a worry). Just things I normally do in this situation aren't working very we...
I am struggling quite a bit with my husband's condition getting worse over time. His flare ups are getting closer together. Not only that, the doctors now think something else is wrong with him alongside his autoimmune condition (IgG4) because the IgG4 diagnosis doesn't explain his level of pain. He...
Xmas can be a tough time. The number of times my husband has been ill over Xmas (just by poor luck I think) I get a bit anxious this time of year. We go down to my parents' place in Somerset - which I absolutely love (I'm really close to my parents and my OH gets on with them really well) - BUT we a...
Hiya, I'm pretty new here too and I can relate completely. I've been a carer for my now husband on and off for 7 years (I'm his full time carer now and looks like it will remain that way from now on). I know what you mean about the family saying they are proud of you etc. They are just trying to be ...
