Hi Francesca and welcome to the forum. I had a similar experience to yours. My son smoked cannabis and took other drugs as a teenager and he was expelled from school. He did get his O levels and went on to college, but after a few months he began to say that people outside our house were talking abo...
I've signed it too. I hope it's successful.
Hi and welcome Is your friend still a student? The college/university should have student services in place for housing and mental health issues.

I'm wary of diazepam. She used to take it a lot, before it was considered addictive, and I think she c...
Hi Claire I second what people are saying about the 'very elderly' and care homes. My mum, 95, moved into one recently and within a couple of months had fallen several times, bruised herself badly, and been admitted to hospital where she was diagnosed with delirium. Now she is back in the care home ...
