New Carers Start Here

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi my name is Sarah

I have been a carer for my son Tim who has chronic fatigue Syndrome for four years. He is seventeen and has just moved out of home which is very difficult as he is still ill but due to various family tensions this has happened. Feel gutted but trying to be philosophical about it as he's not far away. The money situation is abominable, and I have a rotten situation with the Tax Credits, National Insurance Contributions and entitlement to Job seekers Allowance at the moment. So not much money for this 'festive' season. Am currently trying to study for a degree in Psychology with the OU but it looks like I will have to give that up, because of finances. I am married with an 11 year old daughter, and we have a dog called Billie who is a female staffie/Labrador crossbreed who we got from a rescue home literally two days after my son was diagnosed with CFS/ME. So thats me and my situation!!

Kind regards to you all Sarahxx Image
