Please take advice above. No one should have to suffer from domestic abuse. Her illnesses are no excuse. You can more on from this. Making the decision that things have to change is the biggest battle. So well done for posting here.

Let us know how you get on. We are here to help.
If your Mum needs the support then something could perhaps be gained from her looking at how other people deal with caring and explore other options for your sister as she gets older. However, I would caution her adding to your post. The point of the forum is that you can vent confidentially. And th...
Hey Karl Really lovely to meet you. I juggle caring for elderly parents (just my Mum now as Dad died in Feb) and small children. I'll be honest it totally broke me and I didn't have them living with me. I gave up work, was a burnt out husk of the person I had been, was miserable and at times absolut...
Hey Really lovely to meet you. I am carer for my Mum and until recently my Dad. Dad had a rare neurological condition and died this year in a nursing home. Mum now has dementia. But lives at home with help. I also have 2 primary aged children and an insane dog who keep me busy. I work part time, and...

Hi Tracey

Good for you. You've done the right thing even if it feels horrible. Your granddaughter comes first. She is only a child.

Sending you a big hug xx
Well done for posting. That really can't have been easy. You are a young man. You are entitled to a life. To an education. To a job. Your Mum needs to accept outside help to enable you to have these things. This is what a good parent should want for you. Not for you to be giving up your own happines...
Aw, glad you find peace with the M74 - at least sometimes. At one point I had caring responsibility for Mum, Dad and two small children and used to find a few minutes of peace shuttling between commitments a god-send. Radio 2 on loud singing to pop songs was a good release! I also used to keep a sta...
So tough for you all. So frustrating that services are being withdrawn when she is doing well. I think definitely worth challenging this if you haven't already? Explain how the situation will be changing in January and that you disagree with the decision to remove support? What will your wife do in ...
Please don't apologies and please stay in touch. We are an understanding lot and will do all we can to support you.

Take care it sounds as though you have been through the mill.
