Wishing you all the best for christmas and new year. I knwo what you mean....I am exchausted, and another day today of keeping up a front and trying to walk on eggshells. I'm glad the children are too young to see the tension. Roll on next week Image
<t>I am so, so sorry to hear about the attitude of your family, it really makes me want to weep when I see how carers can be isolated in ways they should never have to be. It amazes me how people are too wrapped up in their lives to see whats going on around them. My heart goes out to you and your d...
<t>Hello All, <br/> <br/> Its Christmas eve, and i wonder what each of you are doing and what your feeling. Are you happy, are you sad? I think of you all often, like a silent army of carers spread out across the country, we all represent compassion, empathy, solidarity and determination. <br/> <br/...

They have to serve before you can be kicked out. Get you husbands health team involved. In my opinion, the social/health care assistan...
<t>Hello Mary, welcome, i am new here too. <br/> <br/> Can I ask how long your Mother has been on antidepressants?

I am very isolated where we live now, we can't afford to get the car on the road and my partner is not in a place to socialise. His family don't really get involved as he has made it clear he wants them to stay away. It upse...
