Hello I care for somebody with bad mental health problems and needs somebody with her most of the time. She I think has Bi-polar manic depression and its getting worse and worse. The problem I'm getting is she is getting very abusive and when she is really Low says she dosnt want me to be a carer anymore and that I should stop the next day. Then a few days later she will always change her mind. Its very difficult I feel like just giving up and leaving her to it but we have a child together and I dont really want to leave her... she wont cope on her own. The problem is if I do just stop caring for her and tell the carers allowance people and then a few days later she needs me again its very annoying. HOw do the carers people handle this situation. Can they just reinstate it all again its such a problem and really messes me about I think thats why she does it. I hope this makes sense I just wondered if anybody else had this problem.
