Having a very bad day. My child was supposed to be at a friends and she has gone missing and my husband is looking at me as if he really hates me. I can't take the strain of caring for her and worrying about what she is up to/doing to herself any more.
Pauline .... do you still have any contacts at the Carers Support groups you worked with?

I am just wondering whether the two of you need a break from each other now and then. My daughter goes for a respite break a few times each year and it is BLISS! It’s about 20 miles away at the seaside and the carer lives right on the beach so they do lots of walking, swimming and dog walking. Apparently she is “like a real mother” and “really listens to me” and “brings me tea in bed.” 😂😂

I am assuming she has turned up tonight. Fingers crossed. I honestly would be jumping up and down if I were you because you both need support and help now. Xx
