Its been a long time since I was last on the carers site, & at least mental illness has got its own site now which is good.
Sorry to hear about you & your son Janice but I hope they can help you both as it must be difficult at times.
My husband had flashbacks but after having a course of EMDR 14 months ago hasn't suffered with them since, I'm not saying that it works for everybody but you never know.
It has taken us 14 months to get a support worker & he has just started CBT but that was because my daughter demanded a meeting with the head of the department.She wanted them to know her dad wasn't getting better & that I couldn't do it all on my own as I suffered with Epilepsy.
So I now get 2 hours to myself every Friday!!!!!
Take care everyone Deb xx
