You can't make your Mum happy or well and it isn't your responsibility to try. I've learnt to deflect it when Mum is negative with bland comments that shut the conversat...
My Dad yo-yed in and out of CHC funding for 2 years. Assessment after assessment, appeal after appeal, meeting after meeting. We were often told at meetings that "yes, he will absolutely get funding" - only to be turned down once the decision was reviewed back at head office. It was AWFUL. We were t...
