This seems to have been going on for a long time. No wonder you're so tired and depressed with it all. People on the autistic spectrum tend to slip between the various services and don't get the help they need. I see from one of your earlier posts that CAHMS turned you down because your son's proble...
What do people here think about family members contributing money towards housekeeping? My son contributes and he has been told he shouldn't be expected to do so.

We have a Siberian husky, female aged 1 year and 6 months who requires a lot of walking, which is shared between our two sons who live here and me. I find it leaves me little time to do much housework, including decluttering and not enough time to spend with my family. I also love reading - auto/bio...
Do you have a Citizen's Advice Bureau near you? They helped me through the appeals process when my son was initially turned down for PIP and they were brilliant. They had ideas and advice that I would never even have thought of. In the end we didn't have to have an appeal hearing as the evidence I w...
