I am new to this and this is my first post.

I have been a carer for the past 10 years for my now 83 year old mother. About 2 years ago i met a wonderful lady and have fallen in love, I thought my mother would be happy for me, but alas it just causes arguments when i go out with my lady friend. I am now at my wits end and don't know what to do. I love this lady but also love my mother but it is becoming more and more difficult to do the things i want to do, I.e. to go out when i want, to stay over at my girlfriends house etc, etc. Does anyone have any advise for me, a weekend away would be nice but there is no overnight care in my area (Dorset).
